Hershey Park Made My Weekend

Yesterday, I started my week off right – with a visit to Hershey, PA. Although, the visit was with my business class, I still managed to have a pretty good time. There’s so many fun things to do, and I definitely want to go back next summer.

To start off our trip, our professor took us to the Hershey School. The school offers a safe environment for students to live and learn throughout the year. It’s run off the money made by the Hershey Trust, and you can tell that it’s a huge source of pride for the company. The school is so well maintained and looks so amazing that it could easily pass for a college campus. And the rotunda in Founder’s Hall was breathtaking. The floors were sparkling marble, and the stairs looked like they could’ve been in a royal palace. I’m positive that my mouth was hanging open the entire time I was in the building.

Following our visit to the Hershey School, we went to the Hershey Museum. We started from upstairs where we walked through his life. The museum had a lot of interesting things to look at (I mean, it is a museum dedicated to chocolate), and a lot of interactive experiences. Seeing the old advertisements and boxes of candy was amazing. Honestly, we need to start selling 6 cent candies again.

Following our trip to the museum, we got to go to Hershey Park. (I won’t lie, this was the best part of the trip.) My friends and I sprinted inside of the park once our bus let us out. We rode as many rides as we could in our two hour time, and I even got on two rollercoasters. If you know me, then you know that I don’t usually ride rollercoasters. But how could I go to Hershey Park and not ride a roller coaster.

On our way out, we stopped by Chocolate World. I could’ve spent hours just walking around the store. Seeing all that chocolate made me feel so happy. If I had the funds, I probably would’ve bought seven giant Hershey’s bars.

Going to Hershey Park was the best part of my weekend, and I absolutely cannot wait to go back.
