Columbus Day weekend: things to do in Hershey, PA
Looking for something to do on this long weekend? Look no further....there's plenty of sweet things happening in Hershey The Sweetest Place On Earth! Grab your loved ones and choose from some of our ideas we've outlined below.
Cheer on the home team
The Hershey Bears are home on Sunday, Oct. 13 against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. It's also a Promotion Night and the first 5,000 fans will receive an Advance Auto Parts Car Magnet, so those on the road know you chant B-E-A-R-S BEARS, BEARS, BEARS WOO! on the regular.
Play a round of golf
You read that correctly. There's still time to enjoy a round or two and if you’ve never heard of or golfed at Spring Creek Golf Course, now's the time to experience it. Don’t miss this gem of a course located on Chocolate Avenue. Spring Creek claims bragging rights for being the area’s longest nine-hole golf course. It features 2,200 yards of lush greens, holes lined with mature trees and golfers enjoy the natural Spring Creek stream winding throughout. This par 33 course is perfect for players of all ages – especially those just getting into the game of golf.
Visit the zoo
Open year-round, the ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park focuses on highlighting North American animals and is committed to the conservation of all animals. Walk amidst the falling leaves throughout this 11-acre zoo and visit the more than 200 animals across five different regions.
Don't forget about the indoor Butterfly Atrium at Hershey Gardens, Chocolate Lab at The Hershey Story Museum or Create Your Own Candy Bar at Hershey's Chocolate World!
