A week ago we left Washington DC for Hershey PA. It was a sightseeing trip to include Civil War Battlefields, Hershey’s Chocolate World, and several Wine and Beer tasting experiences. We stayed at a Bluegreen Resort in Hershey PA. As it was only a two hour trip from Dale & Brandy’s home in Laural, MD we could do some sightseeing along the way.
We left on Tuesday April 28th and included a stop at Antietam Battlefield.
On Wed we went to Gettysburg.
Thursday we visited the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA.
Friday Dale and Brandy flew up to meet us and stayed until Sunday when we all left.
Friday after meeting Dale and Brandy we went to Troeg’s Brewery. A microbrewery located right next to the Bluegreen resort. How convenient!! Followed by time in the resort pool.
Saturday was life in heaven, Chocolate Heaven that is, at Hershey’s Chocolate world. After which we drove to a couple of wine tasting vineyards.
Sunday we all flew up to Williamsport, PA together, and had lunch. Then they flew us back to Harrisburg and we drove back to Maryland and they flew back. It was informative and very enjoyable.
Follow us over the next few blogs and we will show you the history, the chocolate, and some reflections from Hershey, PA.
