Beyond the obvious allure of a town built on chocolate, there's much for families in Hershey, Pennsylvania, including an amusement park, a zoo, gardens, and golf.
The historic Hotel Hershey has lots of activities—falconry, paintball, Segway tours, s'mores roasts. At the more casual Hershey Lodge, activities include "family chocolate bingo," all-weather ice skating, and an indoor pool. Hershey also has a campground open all year.
For information on Hershey call 800-437-7439. Spring and early-summer weekend rates at Hotel Hershey start at $319; at Hershey Lodge, $219.
