Home of the Hershey Chocolate Company, the town of Hershey is regularly referred to as the sweetest place on earth.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center as well as Indian Echo Caverns. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to No. 9 Coal Mine & Museum and Cabela's. Get in touch with nature at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and Village Greens Miniature Golf. Get out of town with these interesting Hershey side-trips: National Watch and Clock Museum (in Columbia), Olio Olive Oils & Balsamics (in Lititz) and Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area (in Kleinfeltersville). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Ephrata Cloister, examine the collection at Roadside America, experience rural life at September Farm Cheese, and stop by The Old Country Store.
