the sweetest town in the USA: Hershey, PA
We had such a good time on our vacation this year. We have been back for a few weeks, but I am still editing photos and relishing the sweet memories that we made.
We loved every single second in Hershey, PA. Here we are outside of the Hershey factory. I got out of the car to try and get a good photo of the HERSHEY COCOA spelled out on the lawn. The air smelled sooo good and chocolaty from where I stood.
Hershey Park was a dream for us. Our kids were just the right ages. For some of the time we split up; Dave taking the boys on roller coasters and our girl and I enjoying the kiddie rides.
I can only just look at the roller coasters with awe. Gone are my roller coaster days. I can't even explain it. Before Dave and I got married, I would go to amusement parks with friends and go on any ride. After Dave and I got married we went to a Six Flags and rode the Batman ride. I thought I was going to die. Never again. So no, I did not go on the Super Dooper Looper. But I went on the carousel and the choo-choo and the ladybugs :)
Even the street lights were adorable in Hershey! We loved the street names too.

You can't get tours of the actual factory anymore, but they have a ride that goes through a simulated factory.
Thanks to my darling husband for planning our vacation.
You are a Jolly Rancher indeed.
Good bye, Hershey Park, until next time :) We have to be back...we bought the refillable cup!
