If you think that you’ll only come away from Hershey with pounds of chocolate, you’re wrong — memories of cultural experiences are to be had as well. Hershey Theatre was built during the Great Depression by none other than Milton S. Hershey. Today, it serves as a historic place to see modern Broadway shows and rock concerts. Australian pop group Human Nature is one such band. Remember to check the theater’s calendar on their official website for upcoming live shows. Hersheypark Stadium is a different animal, offering 30,000 seats and the likes of U2 and The Who gracing its massive stage. Big-name acts like Nickelback and Dave Matthews Band sell out this stadium whenever they come to town.
Star Pavilion, the stadium’s sister venue, also hosts live musical performances, but it can only hold 8,000 spectators. Last, but not least, there’s Giant Center, which primarily hosts Hershey Bears hockey games and WWE Smackdowns, but it also books popular musical acts like Lady Antebellum.
