Perched on the top of a hill overlooking the town of Hershey Pennsylvania is the magnificent Hotel Hershey. Completed in 1933 and based on a design by
Milton Hershey this hotel is worth a visit. An overnight would be a good idea, but since Hershey is only about a hour and 45 minutes from the city, it is
definitely okay for a daytrip. There is plenty to do regardless of the season. In the summer you of course can take advantage of the outside pool (hotel
guests only), a putting course, a stroll through the Formal Gardens, a stroll through Hershey Gardens, tennis, basketball, horseshoes, shuffleboard and Zoo America,
adjacent to the park with over 200 North American animals.
Dining options include The Circular, Trevi 5, Cocoa Beanery, the pool café and Harvest. Circular, and it is circular, at least part of it, is the main dining area
where chef Ken cooks up food that does change with the seasons. He suggests you try the scallops. During the summer there is 24 hour room service. Friday nights
during the summer you can enjoy Jazz on the Veranda. For drinks try the Iberian Lounge. Hats off to Mr. Hershey who kept men working during the depression as
most companies were laying people off. When you get to the second level be sure to toss a coin into the fountain. I have on many occasions.
Hersheypark is at most a mile away and a shuttle will take you there. It will also take you to Zoo America. It’s open year round. It’s free with your park admission. You might also consider a look at the Hershey Story. It contains a history of the man and the town. Maybe even a walk along Chocolate Avenue. I will also recommend Chocolate World (no admission fee). Inside are movies, rides and a very big retail area.
By the way, there is a new roller coaster in the park, for those who like such rides. I do not thank you. I’m very happy with the monorail, merry go round and bumper cars.
It’s called Laff Track and is under a dome. I have lost count, but there are at least another 12 or 13 coasters in the park. One popular area is the Water Park. Perfect on one of those hot summer days or nights.
Okay, back to the hotel. The high end room rate is about $359.00, lower rates can be found. The best time for that is between October and April. Packages are
available. If you want to be pampered visit the Spa. Numerous treatments, many with chocolate, are offered. I also like the free parking. For information on the entire area
go to hersheypa.com or call 1-800-HERSHEY.
One final fact, Milton Hershey was supposed to be on the Titanic, but made different plans at the last minute. A good thing for him and the town. He died in 1945.
