Get your party hats and noise makers ready… who wants to ring in the New Year in “sweet” style? What better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve than in the Sweetest Place on Earth… Hershey, PA! You won’t want to miss the raising of the 7-foot tall, and nearly 300-pound Hershey’s Kiss replica at midnight! The famous HERSHEY’s Kiss Drop will once again happen at Central PA’s Premier New Year’s Event, followed by fireworks. From 9 PM to Midnight, it is FREE ADMISSION into the Square in Downtown Hershey, PA.
Yesterday, with much excitement, Hersheypark announced their newest attraction… Hershey Triple Tower™! Scheduled to debut at the 2017 Springtime In The Park event, the attraction is made up of three drop towers, each a different height. The towers include: Hershey’s Tower™, Reese’s Tower™ and Hershey’s Kisses Tower™. These new rides will be located in the Kissing Tower Hill section of the Park. Also coming to Hersheypark in 2017 is the new addition of a Chick-fil-A Express restaurant! New rides, new restaurant… I can’t tell you how excited I am to check out the Park next year.
Despite the surprise snowfall, one of the highlights of my weekend in #HersheyPA was definitely visiting Hersheypark! Milton S. Hershey opened the park back in 1907 as picnic grounds for his employees. Today, the property serves a family friendly amusement park covering 121 acres! Hersheypark features 13 roller coasters, over 25 other rides, live entertainment, a water park, games, food, and shops.
While visiting Hershey, PA, I had the chance to go over and check out the Hershey Lodge, another Official Resort of Hersheypark. Now the Hershey Lodge has 665 guest rooms and 100,000 square feet of function space, but what I’m most excited about this resort is what’s to come later this year! It won’t be long before hotel guests can enjoy year-round water pool fun at the all-new Hershey’s Water Works at Hershey Lodge!
Earlier this month I had the amazing privilege to visit Hershey, PA, “the sweetest place on earth.” With the exception of a Jimmy Buffet concert at Hersheypark Stadium that my bestie and I went to a couple summers back, it had been years since I visited Hershey. When I was offered the opportunity to explore everything that Hershey had to offer, I jumped at the chance! Luckily for me, The Sweetest Place on Earth is an easy 2 hour drive up from where I live in Annapolis, MD. What followed my journey up the highway was fun-filled adventures, perfect for the whole family.
