Welcome, July! There are a ton of things to do in Hershey, PA this month. Keep scrolling for some of our top picks.
Hersheypark is Open Daily
Summer is the perfect time to visit Hersheypark and enjoy coaster rides, water park splashes and endless food options. Did you know that Hersheypark admission tickets include three parks in one? In addition to the coasters, classic family attractions and kiddie rides, guests can cool off at The Boardwalk At Hersheypark water park and see dozens of North American animals at ZooAmerica - all for the price of one ticket.
Guests can enjoy multiple food options throughout the Park like our new food truck, The Frozen Spoon, with Jolly Rancher Grape Sorbet, Jolly Rancher Green Apple Sorbet, Jolly Rancher Cherry Sorbet and Jolly Rancher Blue Raspberry Sorbet. Several dining locations at The Boardwalk also have many must-try items like the Burger of the Month at East Coast Burger Works and The Boardwalk Bowl at Oola Bowls. Stop by The Chocolatier Restaurant, Bar + Patio for a perfect one-of-a-kind outdoor dining experience. Reservations are accepted and can be made through the summer season.
This summer, don’t forget to stop by the Aquatheatre inside Hersheypark as it celebrates 50 years of providing educational and entertaining programming to guests. While admission to Our Friends From The Sea show is included with a Hersheypark ticket, guests can purchase a variety of show add-ons like fish feeds, photo opportunities and an ultimate behind-the-scenes experience for the whole family.
Great ticket offers are available at Hersheypark.com.
