Start off your day in Hershey at the elegant Circular Dining Room at The Hotel Hershey. At the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, you can munch on yummy classic breakfast dishes like chocolate chip brioche French toast with red raspberry syrup or The Hotel Hershey Benedict with poached eggs on an English muffin, Canadian bacon, spinach and crabmeat hollandaise sauce. Then, for the afternoon, go to either Hersheypark or Hershey Museum, depending on your family’s interest level in theme parks and the time of year. If you’re traveling in the summer, the seasonal theme park is home to a dozen water rides — including a few on the boardwalk — that will cool you off. Hershey Museum, on the other hand, will take you back in time to learn about the famous chocolate-maker, Milton S. Hershey. In addition to exhibits that chronicle the life and work of Hershey, there’s also a Chocolate Lab where you can mold and design your own chocolate. You can buy tickets to a class at the admissions desk. Top off your day with either a trip to Hershey’s Chocolate World to tour the historic Hershey factory or take an Amish horse and buggy ride in the more remote areas surrounding Hershey.
