All Chocolate: HERSHEY, PENNSYLVANIA
31st Juli - 1st August 2007: Besuch in Harrisburgh und Hershey.
In Hershey it's all about chocolate. There's one of the Hershey Chocolate factories. Of course we visited "Hershey's Chocolate World". This visit included a tour where the manufacturing of chocolate was explained and surely a stop in the shops. I bought quite a few bags of "Hershey's Kisses".
But it's not just the Chocolate World that's "all about chocolate". The street lights in the city have the outfit of Hershey's Kisses (see picture) and the streets itself are chocolate-brown. When you drive by the factory with rolled down windows you can smell the chocolate too.
Next to the Chocolate World we took a look at one of the other chocolate sides of the town: The top rated "Hotel Hershey"! It doesn't have five stars but it's still THE top hotel in Hershey. In summer you easily pay 400 US dollars for a single room. We just had lunch there.
Not far from the hotel is the "Hershey Gardens". Here you can see different kinds off gardens from all over the world. On the picture you can see the "Memorial Garden". Accordingly it was the most magnificent one.
