The Golf Course at Glen Mills

Bobby Weed built great variety into this charming layout in the pastoral Brandywine Valley. The course, an hour southeast of the festival, also serves as a laboratory for the reforming youths at the Glen Mills Schools. $79–$95; 610-558-2142, glenmillsgolf.com

Hershey Country Club, West Course

The best of Hershey’s three eighteens, the hilly West Course brims with history: Byron Nelson won the 1940 PGA Championship here, and Ben Hogan served as the head pro from 1941 to 1951. It’s an hour west of Adamstown. $120–$140; 717-533-2464, hersheygolfcollection.com


Hershey Lodge

The only way to get on Hershey Country Club is to book a room either at this large family-oriented lodge (from $179 per night; 717-533-3311, hersheylodge.com) or at the stately Hotel Hershey (from $269 per night; 717-533-2171, thehotelhershey.com). Both offer fine accommodations, gourmet restaurants and access to the Chocolate Spa.

Other Activities

Antiques Capital USA

Adamstown has given itself this not-so-humble nickname, and even if your inclination is to avoid antiques shops, you’re likely to find something of interest among the pieces of vintage furniture and countless artifacts and curiosities of Americana in the town’s many barnlike markets and auction houses. antiquescapital.com
