One of my favorite places to take my family is just a short 2-hour drive from the Washington, DC area for me. I fell in love with Hersheypark as a first-timer last year and am thrilled to be representing as a Sweetest Mom ambassador this year.

Here’s everything you need to know to enjoy Hersheypark this summer.


Located in the lovely town of Hershey, PA is where you will find the fabulous Hersheypark, Zoo America, The Boardwalk, and Hershey’s Chocolate World.

Hershey, PA is pretty drivable for families on the northeast coast!

  • 90 minutes from Philadelphia and Baltimore
  • 2 hours from Washington DC
  • 3 hours from New York City

We’re heading up in a few weeks to celebrate my daughter’s 7th birthday because all she wants is chocolate & to ride the train inside the park. Done and done, my girl!


Hersheypark is open for the summer! The season kicked off on April 27th and runs through September 30th. Here are the Hersheypark hours for your sweet summer planning purposes.

  • Hersheypark hours in May are limited. Until May 20th, it’s open on Fridays and Sundays from 10am to 8pm. Saturdays from 10am to 10pm.
