Things to Do in Hershey PA

I’ll be honest, I had no idea there was so much to do and see outside of Hersheypark. I think I just had tunnel vision when we went as a family. Must. Ride. Rides. and eat chocolate. There are a lot of things to do in Hershey PA besides Hersheypark that are just as fun and include chocolate.

Hershey Bears

I have always been a hockey fan but I’ve never made it to a game. That all changed when I attended the second to last game of the season for the Hershey Bears. That night the team paid tribute to the Humboldt Broncos. In April, the Broncos were headed home when their bus was struck by an eighteen wheeler. 16 people lost their lives. It was truly special to be there at the Hershey Bears game that night and be a part of honoring those who lost their lives.

While hanging out in the box, I got a chance to talk to the VP of operations, Bryan Helmer. Bryan is a former player and all around nice guy. Riley Barber also stopped by to say hi, poor guy is on the injured list due to a shoulder injury. Ouch. Been there, it is not pleasant.

It was amazing to be in the stadium, cheering on the home team.

I got to meet Coco the Bear and they won! So that was pretty awesome.

Concerts and Shows

Broadway shows, concerts, movie screenings, and more are waiting for you in Hershey. Acts like Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, Keith Urban, and Marvel Universe Live are coming to the Giant Center this year. That is where the Hershey Bears play and it is the perfect place to watch one of these awesome shows.
