Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Hershey Entertainment and Resorts. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.Hersheypark in lovely Hershey, Pennsylvania many times when I was growing up. My family didn't live locally (we were about an hour away), however I probably visited at least once a year during a family outing or school field trip. We'd sometimes meet up with cousins who didn't live in our town, and I recall one time visiting Hersheypark with my cousin from Georgia. There's no way she was coming all the way up to PA and not riding The Comet.
Speaking of live music, there is a lot going on this summer in Hershey, whether at the Hersheypark Stadium, Hersheypark Arena, The Star Theater, The Hershey Theater or the Giant Center. Performers include Jay Z and Justin Timberlake, Matchbox 20, The Dave Matthews Band, and more. You can find more info HERE.
Hershey, PA is an easy drive from most major cities on the East Coast (90 min. from Philadelphia and Baltimore, 2 hours from Washington, DC, and 3 hours from New York) so it makes a great place for a quick (or long!) getaway for your family. I can't wait to take the boys this summer, especially to play in the new Shoreline Sprayground in The Boardwalk area of the park.
