Hershey—a place where families come together to get a taste
of the sweet life, where streetlights are shaped like Hershey's
Kisses, Chocolate Avenue meets Cocoa Avenue, and the air is
filled with the wonderful aroma of chocolate!
Tucked in the rolling hills of Central Pennsylvania, this idyllic
escape offers the latest and greatest in entertainment and
hospitality, fused with the traditions of one of America’s
original success stories.
It was here that Milton
S. Hershey opened the world’s first modern chocolate
factory in 1905. Wanting to give something back to the community,
he built a "model town" to provide his employees and
their families with an attractive and comfortable place to live,
work, and play.
Today Hersheypark, ZooAmerica, the Milton Hershey
School, and more Hershey attractions are
lasting monuments to Mr. Hershey’s legacy and vision.
Hershey’s location is also ideal for exciting
day trips to the many cultural, historical, educational, and
entertaining attractions in the region. Harrisburg, Gettysburg,
Lancaster, and York are all within a short distance of Hershey.
