MLK 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 even during winter in Hershey The Sweetest Place On Earth! Grab your loved ones and choose from some of our ideas we've outlined below.
Visit ZooAmerica - free for kids!
Did you know winter is one of the best times to visit ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park? Open year-round, the animals on exhibit outdoors are much more active and easier to see this time of year. All month long, kids ages 8 and under can visit for FREE on Saturdays and Sundays for ZooAmerica's Disccovery Weekends! This weekend, the Otters are the featured animal, where guests can learn more and experience an up-close "animal encounter."
Dine on new bites (and sips) at The Hotel Hershey
Every season, The Hotel Hershey culinary team updates its restaurant menus to take advantage of in-season ingredients and keep guests excited. Trevi 5 and the Iberian Lounge just "flipped" their menus this past week. And pop into the Tavern at Harvest - they roll out new cocktails on Friday afternoon!
Learn about our founder
The Hershey Story Museum honors and preserves the life and legacy of Milton S. Hershey, the town he created and the lives he touched. Museum exhibits explore Mr. Hershey's early failures, how he successfully revolutionized the process of making milk chocolate, the "other" model town he built in Cuba and how he and his wife, Kitty, created Milton Hershey School. Today the School stands as the Hersheys' legacy and is the world's largest residential home and school for children in financial and social need.
