Hershey's is the HOME of Hershey Chocolate.. (All my favorite treats. Reeses, Kisses, KitKats, etc. etc. Not a good thing for the day after Thanksgiving.:) Hershey's is also a Theme park. During the month of December they decorate for Christmas and hold Christmas Candylane. Right next door to the park is the factory... as soon as we stepped into the park, the Heavenly aroma of Chocolate engulfed us and surrounded us for the rest of the day. Christmas carols were being blasted from the speakers, it was FREEZING, and it was a perfect day for having fun! I highly recommend it to anyone close by.
Getting ready to ride the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Challenge...
Inside Hershey's World (the factory), you can go on a tour of how they make the their chocolate and try and navigate your way through all of the shops and bakery's... This is the Christmas display inside Hershey World.

I do have to admit they picked an absolutely beautiful place to live. We were only about 2 miles from where the Amish school shooting took place. No one in the town will talk about it. Since the shooting they have taken the school down and planted a field. There is no memorial. You will only know where it once stood if you are a resident. I hope I didn't shatter your image of the Amish too much. :) JC and I are still completely jealous of where they live. It is so pretty. We just aren't sure about being in awe of their "SIMPLE" life. It was very interesting to learn about their culture and we really enjoyed our visit.
