This post originally appeared on MamaCheaps.com
When you think about visiting Hershey, PA, chances are probably fairly high that you are planning to spend some time in Hersheypark. Hersheypark is so much fun for all ages and you could easily spend a day or more enjoying the rides and other attractions. Of course, the one thing that you just can’t plan for when making travel arrangements is the weather. If you happen to find yourself in Hershey on a rainy day, don’t fret! There are a bunch of wonderful family friendly things to do around town that make great alternatives to a soggy theme park.
1. Chocolate World: Whether you have been to Hershey’s Chocolate World one or fifteen times, it never gets old! Stop in and take the simulated factory tour to learn how some of Hershey’s world famous candies are made. (Hint: EVERYONE gets a sweet treat at the end of this FREE tour.) There is a 4D movie, you can make your own chocolate bar and do a chocolate tasting experience. There is a large retail area featuring all sorts of Hershey branded merch and even a food area where you can purchase your favorite Hershey candies and chocolates. If you’re hungry, check out the food court area (our fave? The milkshakes!).
2. Hershey Gardens: Open year round and featuring seasonal displays, yes, the exterior of Hershey Gardens would be pretty wet on a rainy day. However! An absolute MUST SEE (and it’s INDOORS) is the Butterfly Atrium! Walk through a butterfly wonderland and see 500-600 butterflies as they flutter around in a balmy tropical setting! We saw a lovely variety of beautiful butterflies during our visit, including this colorful monarch!
