Looking for a great getaway? How about a deliciously sweet getaway that you can drive to?
Head to Hershey Lodge for a wonderfully comfortable stay, great restaurants and a fun waterpark too!
The room was spacious. One of our most favorite moments was when we realized that there were Hershey Kisses in the design of the sheets! Loved it! We loved it even more when we found out that you can purchase the sheets in the gift shop. Sweet!
After driving from NYC and checking in to the hotel, we were hungry and decided to eat lunch at the Hershey Grill. It was a beautiful day so we ate outdoors and enjoyed the pond adjacent to the restaurant. There were a variety of dining options that we all enjoyed.
After lunch, we wasted no time getting our bathing suits on and heading to Hershey’s Water Works. Lots of fun indoor water park activities as well as some outdoor fun too.
We took notice of the house rules and realized that this was the perfect way to spend our afternoon before a park preview later in the evening.
The girls had a blast on the Twizzler Twists.
The tube twists right outside the building and back. I do not think I could count how many times they were up the stairs and down the tube!
In the pool, you had the option of playing basketball, attempting Reese’s Water Walk or playing with the dolphins. You can see what her favorite part was!
We were lucky to have a beautiful day and enjoy some relaxing time outside too. The Outdoor Splash Pad is right outside Water Works.
In the evening, we decided to visit the park for Park Preview. Did you know that you can go into the park a few hours before on the night before to preview the park and enjoy the rides and attractions? Shhh, it is a secret.
And, when you pay for parking, save the ticket stub. The next morning, when you go back to the park, show them your ticket stub and park ticket and you do not have to pay again!
After enjoying some of the rides, we headed to Chocolate World for some dessert. Doesn’t this sundae look awesome? It tasted delish too.
After a busy day, it was time to head back to the hotel for some much needed rest.
In the morning, we headed to Fire & Grain located in the Hershey Lodge lobby.
The had a breakfast buffet with many choices as well as the option to have an omelette made with your choice of fillings.
When in Hershey, you must have mini kisses on your waffle. It was the perfect touch!
I didn’t have the waffle but I did add kisses to my oatmeal. That’s right! When in Hershey….
After breakfast, we took a walk around the lodge.
Look who we ran into right in our lobby!
Then, you also do not need to drive! Complimentary shuttle service is available right outside of the hotel.
The girls and I had a blast. 2017 is a great year to be #HersheyParkHappy
