I recently took a trip with my best friend Danielle to the sweetest place on earth, Hershey PA of course! I have been to Hershey PA over a dozen times in the last few years. There is just so much to do in this sweet town, it’s hard to do it all in one weekend.

This wasn’t a regular girls trip, this was a big trip for us as we celebrate our birthdays which land in the same month. Danielle’s birthday is at the beginning of the month and mine is at the end.

Breakfast At The Hotel Hershey Circular Room

I cannot rave enough about the breakfast experience you get when you dine in the Circular Room at the Hotel Hershey. It’s elegant and has that timeless feel as if you were stepping back in time.

I am a huge fan of their fresh made-to-order omelets and signature Hershey’s Chocolate Pudding. One day I will figure out what that recipe is and make it every Saturday morning for the rest of my life.

A Trip To Chocolate World

Chocolate World in Hershey, PA offers guests many interactive experiences, including creating your very own chocolate bar. I cannot stress enough how important it is to visit one of the world’s largest candy stores. I mean they offer all of your favorite Hershey candies but in JUMBO size.

I’m talking World’s Largest (insert your favorite Hershey candy name)! Not only that, you can dine at one of their delicious food stops which include jumbo-sized Smore’s.

Casual Lunch at Chocolate World

Chocolate World offers some fun delicious foods and drinks, my favorite, of course, being the chocolate braised pulled brisket. It is out of this world delicious and honestly, you can’t help but lick your plate when it’s gone.

If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth after you have finished off your brisket, head over to the bakery counter or Smores bar. Warning, those Smores are huge and you don’t actually have to share it if you don’t want to *wink*.

Make Your Very Own Candy Bar

Unleash the chocolatier in you by making your very own candy bar at Chocolate World. It’s definitely one of my favorite things to do when I visit Chocolate World, as you can basically mix and match different ingredients during each visit. This was my friend Danielle’s first time ever doing something like this, so she was the most excited to try this experience.

After a few customizations, your candy bar is ready to be made, this is the best part! Watch as your candy bar reaches each step of the production line including all of the special ingredients you choose in the first stages. While it cools down head over to the “decorating” room as I like to call it and create a custom label fit for a chocolate queen.

Hang Out With Butterflies

There really isn’t anything words to describe how amazing the Butterly Room is at The Hershey Gardens. It’s one of those things you have to do yourself in person.

This is a great destination to visit all year round, the gardens are always open and perfect for visiting during the Spring and Summer. While the Butterfly room is open year round, it’s a great destination to visit when you want to escape the weather outside.

Make sure you to bring your good camera and a fully charged phone, you won’t want to miss these priceless pictures.

Tip: Wear a short sleeve shirt or tank top under your jacket during the fall and winter. The butterfly room is kept at a warm damp temperature for the butterflies.

I highly suggest you dress appropriately so you can stay in the room and enjoy the butterflies longer. Also if you do have to leave the room, reentry is available at no extra cost until closing time of the same day of the visit.

FYI for all guests staying at Hershey resort properties, you will receive complimentary tickets for your whole family as a guest perk.

Hershey Story Museum

If you have extra time in Hershey make sure you check out their Hershey Story Museum. It’s full of history about Milton Hershey and his company. I like to take the kids there whenever we get the chance, it’s the perfect rainy day activity that rewards their visitors.

A sweet prize is rewarded to those who opt-in for their historical scavenger hunt. It’s a quick fill-in-the-blanks form the whole family can do together. Danielle took hers very seriously and made sure she got her prize at the end of our visit.

Truffle Making Classes at The Chocolate Lab

A first for me but definitely not the last time I get hands-on with some truffles. In this hands-on class, you can learn just what it takes to make those delicious truffles your family is obsessed with.

Learn the history behind chocolate its self and a little bit of history about the Hershey Company its self. You can purchase tickets at the front desk upon arrival.

Girls Only Dinner at Devon’s Seafood + Steak

Make a reservation! I cannot stress this enough when visiting Devon’s Seafood + Steak restaurant. The food is delicious and it’s located next door to The Hershey Story Museum.

If you are staying at a local Hershey property a valet or shuttle driver can drop you off and pick you up for free at this location. Perfect for out-of-town visitors who want to save money on commuting for dinner.

Make sure you sign up for their newsletters to be in the know for upcoming events. They host many different dinner events that will help unleash the foodie in you! For a smaller crowd, opt to dine here for lunch or an early dinner. Minimal wait and as always, the food is fresh and delicious.

Catch A Hersheys Bear Game

Roar with the local Hockey Team The Hershey Bears. If you haven’t already seen this team play then you are in for a sweet surprise. I have never attended a hockey game before so I didn’t know what to expect.

I absolutely loved all the noise, the cheering, the wave we got to join in on and of course the food! It’s a great family-friendly activity packed with classic game day foods. My suggestion is if you have the numbers for it, go for the box seats!

Spa Day At The Hotel Hershey or Melt Spa

Dive into a day of luxury and relaxation at The Hotel Hershey or the local Melt Spa. Both locations offer signature Hershey services that you simply don’t want to miss. My favorite part about visiting the Hotel Hershey Spa has to be the Lunch in the oasis and the unlimited Hershey’s Hot Chocolate.

It’s a chocolate lover’s dream and this mom’s escape from the stress at home with 4 kids. Book way in advance if you would like a Spa Day at the Hotel Hershey, it’s worth every penny I promise!
