Chocolate lovers, beware—this place will satiate your senses! The sweet aroma pervades the town, designated the “Chocolate Capital of the World.” The two main streets are—what else?—Chocolate and Cocoa Avenues, where streetlamps mimic chocolate kisses. Founded in 1903 by Milton S. Hershey, it is a planned industrial community that includes the Hershey Foods Corporation, one of the world’s largest chocolate and cocoa plants. This guide from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Baltimore.

Hershey, Pa is a nice day trip, but nothing more. I could not see spending more than a day there. The amusement park was nice, but not as nice as the big mansions that line Chocolate Avenue. Take the factory tour, but a big bag of Hershey''s Kisses and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, then find a nice quiet place to eat it all.
