It rained all night last night and was still gloomy this morning, but we didn’t let that stop us from going out. Hershey is only about 10 miles from us so even though we have been there twice before we went for another visit.
Anyone who loves chocolate would enjoy Hershey’s Chocolate World, but I think the children would appreciate it the most. They have made some changes since the last time we were here, and are still constructing inside. It’s not all free. And Bernie and I can be the tightwads so we just went for the free “tour.”
The tour isn’t a real tour, more like a Disney World attraction. We were seated in some chocolate drop shaped cars and were taken around animated musical displays that explained the chocolate making process.
After the ride we exit through the gift shop (naturally). All things Hershey are here along with a good sized food court. We were invited to partake in a product survey. We were escorted into a little room where we were given a sample of some red licorice pieces, and answered questions on an iPad. They gave us each a free Hershey bar as a thank you.
This is Amish Country. We heard about an amazing smorgasbord place so just had to check it out. It’s called the Shady Maple Smorgasbord, and it really was a good one. Next to that was a huge gift shop, and supermarket, and some more shopping, all owned and run by the Amish people here.
There are parking areas for the horses.
Even a covered parking area to provide shade and shelter from the rain.
When we returned to the RV, which is parked in a casino parking lot, it was raining again and there were storm warnings and tornado warning sirens were sounding, so we went into the casino to hang out in there for a while. I hope it all goes away so I can sleep tonight.
Shady Maple… Mmmm! Best food around 🙂
Now you are in my neck of the woods! Go to Lancaster too! Many sights to see! I was born and raised in Berks county!
