Thanks to Hershey Park and Visit Hershey and Harrisburg Tourism for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.  

If you are looking to take your family on a vacation close to NYC than look no further than Hershey, PA. This was my first time going to Hershey Park and it won’t be the last we went in the beginning of June so there were certain things that weren’t opened yet like Hershey Towers and Chocolate Factory but we still had a great time.

With so many places to chose from thanks to Hershey Bureau for helping to sponsor our trip. Here are 3 reasons why you should visit Hershey, PA

1.Civil War MuseumNot everyone thinks about going to a museum while on vacation but I said why not. I love for my kids to learn new things. The exhibits were well thought and put together. We loved how they showed the involvement of African Americans in the Civil War. We learned so much while there.

ZooAmerica- ZooAmerica is apart of Hershey Park its a huge zoo and an attraction you shouldn’t miss.

Susquehanna Boat-While we couldn’t go on this boat because of the rain this is a great way to see Pennsylvania by water.

Hershey Park-Last but not least what everyone comes to visit none other than Hershey Park. Filled with rides, games, zoo you create some special memories here. What I love about Hershey Park is that they have something for everyone. Our kids are 5 and 7 there was more than enough kid rides for them to enjoy.

Lake Tobias Wildlife Park & Safari Tour
Not a zoo but a working farm we got up close and personal with bison, deers and goats.

Hershey Pantry- Situated in a house this charming restaurant offers charm and sophistication we went there for breakfast we got chocolate chip pancakes which were good. You don’t want to pass this place up when traveling to Hershey.

Chick Fil-A
As a chick Fil-A mom ambassador I don’t turn down the chance to find the restaurant in the area while there I has a conversation with a great employee while trying out their famous peach tea.

Now if you are looking to save some $$$ on food there was one night when we ordered Dominos.
