Today we fare welled the east coast of Canada as we drove across the border back into New York on our way to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Driving through the winding roads among the luscious green trees and picturesque towns, our first stop was at Wegmans, a local supermarket for a lunch break.
Then we hopped back on the bus and drove into Pennsylvania where we arrived in the town of Hershey. The town was named after the creator of Hershey’s chocolate and you’ll find yourself driving down streets such as Chocolate Avenue. The street lamps aren’t your standard light poles either, they are in the shape of Hershey kisses.
We found our way to Hershey’s Chocolate World and what a world it was! The ‘world’ is filled with chocolates, souvenirs, a small food hall and you can go on a self guided tour free of charge. It’s a happy place to be lost in regardless of your age, it will bring out your inner child.
I found the food stand which sold pretzel sticks, fudge and popcorn and I couldn’t pass up the chance to get a cookies and creme pretzel stick and it tasted as good as it looks!
After entering the chocolate coma, we drove to the Comfort Inn in Harrisburg. For dinner our topdeck guide walked us down to the main food strip and I got a salad from the Pita Place.
After a short walk back to the Inn via the river, it was time to turn in and wait for the new day to roll around.
