Away from the city: Hershey, Penn.

A couple weekends ago, we were driving back to DC from State College and decided to take a pit stop in Hershey, Penn.  I hadn't been to Hershey since I was in Jr High and Dave had never been, so we were excited to give it a try. They have several fancy paid tours and a free basic tour -- guess which one we took? :) The FREE tour is on a "people mover" and shows you the process for making Chocolate.

Afterwards, we got treats at the ice cream shop.  So so good, but too rich to finish.  We should have split it because we each threw half of our treats away!

Hershey was a fun little stop on the way home -- I don't think the free tour is worth making a big drive for, but going 15 minutes out of the way, sure!!

Oh, and another fun stop, the town next to Hershey, Penn had a SONIC so y'all know I had to have a large FOUNTAIN DRINK! Sonics are rare finds in our neck of the woods so on the rare occasion that I find one, I stop! (We have a wendy's by our house, but its not the same, no diet dr pepper!!)

We love trying to see as much as we can in the area -- sometimes its a historical site and sometimes its just chocolate!!
