Maybe it’s a yearly tradition to visit, or maybe your scout troop or other organization had a recent visit.

A family vacation to Hershey PA is one that can offer SWEET experiences for everyone in the family. Thrill seekers will love twisting, turning, and laughing it up on the many Hersheypark rollercoasters. Gamers won’t be able to resist the allure of Reese’s Cupfusion or all the boardwalk games. Foodies can feast on a plethora of snacks, entrees, and desserts.


Non-riders can fill their visits with shows in the park, walks through the garden, or animal encounters at the zoo. Kids who love to splash and play in the water will appreciate that Hershey offers indoor and outdoor waterpark attractions.


Not to be left out history buffs, sports enthusiasts, theater geeks, and moms in need of self care will also find that Hershey has attractions that will excite them. There truly is something for everyone.


Start your family vacation to Hershey with a sweet stay at one of these Hersheypark area accommodations!

A visit to Hershey offers too much fun to fit into one day. For the best experiences, families should plan to stay at the Hershey campgrounds, Hershey Lodge, or Hotel Hershey. While each resort infuses Hershey into the property they also each offer a unique way to have a sweet family vacation.


Many members of our team have been thrilled to stay at the Hershey Lodge during their Hersheypark family vacations. The Hershey Lodge has clean and spacious accommodations and amenities to make your trip stress free. At the Hershey Lodge you’ll find a new waterplay area, multiple restaurants, a convenient shuttle to the amusement park and daily family activities. It’s a hotel that’s a vacation destination on its own!
