Many of our Christmas memories rotate around our love of chocolate: nibbling pieces as we bake holiday cookies, sipping hot cocoa while we watch a festive movie, and savouring the foil wrapped goodies in our stockings on Christmas morning.Hershey’s Chocolate understands the special connection people have between Christmas and chocolate and offers a number of festive diversions during the holiday season in Chocolate Town.
We had a chance to spend a weekend in Hershey, Pennsylvania, experiencing all that is Christmas, including these:
Hersheypark Christmas Candylane
Hersheypark is transformed into Christmas Candylane, a holiday delight for your senses: be dazzled by two million twinkling lights; enjoy festive treats, rides and entertainment; and Say hi to Santa and his reindeer.
Load-up on hot chocolate and turn on the Christmas music as you drive through two miles of colourful lights and animated displays, up and around and through the woods.
Interactive Experiences witihin Chocolate World
Immerse yourself within the world of chocolate with fun interactive activities like: making your own custom chocolate bar, seeing a 12-foot high house completely covered in Hershey’s candy, or just grab some last minute gift ideas for the chocolate lover on your list, all within Chocolate World.
Enjoy a Christmas sing-along, wonderful buffet lunch, special treats and surprises, plus a visit with Santa and Mrs. Clause all within an afternoon at the splendid Hotel Hershey. By far one of the best Santa dining experiences we have enjoyed.
From chocolate martinis in front of the large stone fireplace to s’more making on property at Swan Lake, Hershey Lodge offers guests a delightful holiday experience with many added features.
