Look forward to smiles and sugar highs in this U.S. candy capital, known as the sweetest place on earth, where families can tour the famous factory, ride roller coasters in Hersheypark, and even pose for pictures with a life-sized Hersey Kiss.

Hershey's Chocolate World

Learn how chocolate is transformed from bean to bar taking the Great American Chocolate Tour, a roller-coaster-style ride through a simulated factory, narrated by cartoon cows. Then, taste some of the company’s signature wares at Hershey’s Chocolate Tasting 101 at Hershey’s Chocolate World.

Hershey Lodge

Family-friendly and convenient to Hersheypark amusement park, this 665-room resort is a good bet in the summer, when its three swimming pools are especially welcome; family bingo is played for—what else?—chocolate prizes.

The Hershey Pantry

Parents will appreciate the hearty breakfast—kids will love the 20-plus kinds of pie.

What If… of Hershey

Lobster ravioli and filet mignon may be off-message, but are followed by chocolaty desserts.
