Took my first-born to Hershey Park for his birthday (THIRTEEN!) and I knew HE’D love it….(C’mon: copious amounts of chocolate, rides on the Comet, the Claw, the Trailblazer ’til you’d almost hurl, and what’s in this hotel room drawer? Heaven for boys and teenaged boys.) But I was a little leery. Sometimes the summer masses at a theme park ain’t pretty.
But surprisingly, what I found was a clean playground with mature plantings, friendly folks, and yes, copious amounts of chocolate. I also surprised myself: though there were crowds, crying toddlers, and way too many rides on the Pirate, I was able to see some of the beauty of the place.
