Other than the tourist attractions, there's not much else to Hershey. It's a small town and I definitely think other small towns have more local personality than Hershey does. You can go there for concerts, hockey games and the things I'm mentioned already, but just to hang out? I'm not so sure. Perhaps...
There are some cool buildings and nice small recreational parks in the town, though...like the building I have pictured.
This obviously isn't my favorite thing:)
There are three main things to do while in Hershey.
1.) Visit the Hershey factory and take a tour. They give free chocolate. Ummm good!
2.) Visit Hershey park for 2 days, it's really fun, and there's a ton to do!
3.) Stay in the Hotel Hershey for at least 1 night, free limo rides to the Hershey Park!
Go on as many rides as you can or that your stomach can handle. Also check the schedule to see what groups and concerts are going on in the park.
Fondest memory: While waiting to go on the water flume ride, I heard music from the theater. I was impressed with how much they sounded like the group America. After all while standing on line, all the songs we heard were songs done by America. Well, when we got off the ride, I took a walk across to the theater. Well, the reason they sounded like America, was because it was. Wow, did that bring back memories of seeing them while in college. I believe the concert was free for those who got a seat. I stood behind a split fence to watch and listen. What a great show.
