Hershey, Pennsylvania – Chocolate World And More…

Ahhh.. Who haven’t heard of Hershey’s and Reese’s?  I am sure, most kids and adults do, right? Well , we made this a part of our  road trip in America last year. Sorry for the late blog but life has been very hectic. 🙂

From Niagara Falls in Canada, travel time was about 6 hours passing through some amazing landscapes.  Check my Pennsylvania page and you will see my previous blog about it. Calling it beautiful is definitely an understatement.

We took 20A upon entering Buffalo , New York area. Then down to Highway 99 which eventually became Interstate 15 as we got nearer to Hershey.

Finally, we have arrived…. At the Sweetest Place on Earth – Hershey , Pennsylvania. 🙂

We checked in immediately at Super 8 upon arrival. It’s a simple but brand new hotel. At $80 per night, I found it cheap. The room was large and had two queen size beds. The bathroom has a tub too. Plus our booking had free breakfast. Not bad, considering the price. And it was very clean at that! 🙂

From there, we went out to look for food. And then I noticed the street lights! 🙂

They’re built like “Hershey Kisses” .  ha ha  Cute right? You definitely can’t find those anywhere!

They have streets named as Chocolate Ave. Hershey Park Dr. Etc. 🙂 So interesting….

And then we found their restaurant area. After an early dinner, we visited their grocery store. And found some interesting things.

We have these flowers in Buda. 🙂

On our second day, we left the hotel for the outlet malls, after breakfast. Believe me, visiting the outlet malls when you’re in the U.S. is a must! It is way cheaper than shopping in the Philippines. Specially with their autumn sale. 🙂

See… he says he’s smiling. haha

After our shopping galore, John brought me to the Hershey and Reese’s factory. 🙂
