Hidden in central Pennsylvania (PA) is a gem of a city called Hershey. It’s known for its chocolate, but Milton Hershey built many other amenities for his staff and community. One of those was Hersheypark. It started as… a Park (go figure) with a stream, pond, shady trees and picnic areas, trails, at some point a carousel and ferris wheel were added, and the rest, as they say…
