Lions and tigers and roller coasters and chocolate bars, oh my!
Hershey, Pennsylvania is dubbed the "Sweetest Place on Earth." Natch! Because it's home to the famous Hersheypark, where life-sized Hershey Bars and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups run free among the amusement park's more than 65 rides and attractions.
The park features 11 roller coasters, a boardwalk featuring water attractions, award-winning live song and dance shows and a marine mammal presentation. You won't go hungry with the dozens of food options available at the park -- and don't forget to make a stop at the gift shop for some delicious chocolate souvenirs.
Don't miss The Hershey Story, The Museum on Chocolate Avenue, as well as Hershey's Chocolate World, which offers a chocolate tour, trolley rides through Chocolate Town, USA and more.
