Experience Hershey with a Sightseeing Tour - Hershey Trolley Works

Hershey with a Sightseeing Tour - Hershey Trolley Works
A few weeks ago we headed down to Hershey in Pennsylvania to experience some of the great family-friendly activities that Hershey has to offer. If you have never visited the sweetest place on earth, you really should!

We started off our day at ZooAmerica and then headed over to Hershey's Chocolate World. Once we were there, we decided to take a sightseeing tour with Hershey Trolley Works. We have known about these educational, historical and fun tours...but had never taken one until last month.

During the month of September they will be bringing back their very popular The History & Chocolate Tour. This tour really features all of the great history of Milton S. Hershey and all of the chocolate candy he made famous! Great for chocolate lovers and history buffs!

One of the things I really loved about the tour is that your tour guides and conductors all dress the part! I loved seeing them wearing their uniforms! These tours can get very crowded and with very long waiting lines, so if you can...arrive early in the morning to get ahead of the crowds. If you're really lucky, you may spot the famous Hershey's Kissmobile while you're out doing the tour. Often times you can see it at local events or as it's driving through the downtown area. Fun!
