Hershey Story: Family Travel

Hershey Story Museum Family Fun

I love the quote by George Bernard Shaw that says, “A happy family is but an early heaven.” Spending time with family is very important. Quality time together helps create beautiful memories. Thus, traveling and learning together is a great way to teach children and have fun with them.

When my children heard that I was attending iRetreat Conference in Hershey, PA, they thought it was the sweetest news ever. While I learned about blogging my family enjoyed all the wonderful sites in the area. One of their favorite places was Hershey Story in Hershey, Pennsylvania. While visiting Hershey Story my children and husband learned about the life-story of Milton Hershey, the Confectioner, philanthropist, and founder of The Hershey Chocolate Company. They also learned about chocolate, the history of the area, and The Hershey Chocolate Company. Mr. Hershey changed the way we enjoy chocolate and revolutionized the entire chocolate world.

What’s great about Hershey Story is that everyday they have special activities for families and kids. There is a regular calendar that updates visitors on fun events at the museum so that the experience will not only be educational, but fun as well.

If you are ever near Hershey and you want to enjoy a Chocolate fun experience, then give Hershey Story a visit.

For my kids, the Chocolate Lab was their favorite experience because they were able to make their own chocolate. They were also able to taste different chocolate and learn how a variety of chocolate bars and candy produced.

My kids couldn’t wait to tell me about the nibs (the meat extracted from the cocoa bean) that are placed in the chocolate.
