Welcome to Hershey, The Great American Chocolate Town!
Hershey—a place where families come together to get a taste of the sweet life, where streetlights are shaped like Hershey's Kisses chocolates, Chocolate Avenue meets Cocoa Avenue, and the air is filled with the wonderful aroma of chocolate!
Tucked in the rolling hills of Central Pennsylvania, this idyllic escape offers the latest and greatest in entertainment and hospitality, fused with the traditions of one of America’s original success stories.
It was here that Milton S. Hershey opened the world’s first modern chocolate factory in 1905. Wanting to give something back to the community, he built a "model town" to provide his employees and their families with an attractive and comfortable place to live, work and play.
Today Hersheypark, ZooAmerica, the Milton Hershey School and more are lasting monuments to Mr. Hershey’s legacy and vision.
Hershey’s location is also ideal for exciting day trips to the many cultural, historical, educational, and entertaining attractions in the region. Harrisburg, Gettysburg, Lancaster, and York are all within an easy hour drive of Hershey.
