about us

Hershey, Pennsylvania
Located 90 miles from Wilmington, Hershey is within a 2 hour drive. The Hershey Company has Chocolate World - where you will find a free 15 minute factory tour and ticketed 1 hour Factory Works experience and special events for Halloween and Christmas.  They are open every day of the year (except Christmas) beginning mostly at 9am and closing at various times - so click here for the calendar.  We searched every inch of their web site and found no good description of the tours and no mention of what ticket prices are but lots of instructions to give them a call at (717) 534-4900 for more info - quaint but a tad inconvenient.

Hershey is growing all the time and beside the factory it offers Hershey Amusement Park, ZooAmerica, the Spa at the Hotel Hershey, Golf, Hershey Gardens with their Children’s Garden, HersheyPark Stadium, Star Pavilion and Giant Center.  The amusement park and zoo are open May-September but have seasonal special events. Turn your day trip into a get-away and stay at the grand old Hotel Hershey, the family friendly Hershey Lodge or get back to nature at Highmeadow Campground
