Spend Spring in The Sweetest Place On Earth
Spring is officially here! The beginning of longer days, warm weather, and Hersheypark reopening are just a few of the reasons to be excited for a new season. Add in sweet deals and a wide variety of things to do and you’ll see why spring is such a sweet time to visit Hershey.
Here are a few of our top suggestions of what to see and do:
Hersheypark Reopens for Springtime In The Park
After a long winter waiting for the return of coaster rides, Hersheypark is gearing up for its Springtime In The Park seasonal event for three fun-filled weekends in April. Guests can enjoy the park rides and coasters, snap a #HersheyparkHappy photo with their favorite Hershey Characters, and grab a bite to eat at one of the delicious dining locations in Hershey’s Chocolatetown.
Plus, for a limited time, park-goers can save more than 35% when purchasing tickets online with the Best Price of the Year offer before March 31.
ZooAmerica is open daily this spring for guests to visit over 200 animals native to the North American region. Explore the numerous habitats of this 11-acre wildlife park and be greeted by animals such as bears, wolves, alligators, big cats, snakes, otters, and many more.

It's also the best time to plan for a summer getaway. Guests who book by March 31 will save big on accommodations with the Best Rates of Summer, including in popular resort packages at The Hotel Hershey, Hershey Lodge, and Hersheypark Camping Resort.
