We bought a Groupon and for the family of four it was 24.00, to me that was worth it. Kind of boring for the kids, but they did enjoy the butterfly house. May I suggest they put in a playground add some picnic tables, something more to attract and keep the kids coming back. As an adult, the place was... More

We had a wonderful day at the Hershey Gardens, so many flowers and different gardens to look at, make sure you take your camera, we took tons of photos. And there were plenty of benches to stop and enjoy the views and just rest for a minute! The herb garden had a beautiful sitting area and the smells were unbelievable.... More

Great way to unwind for a few hours. Butterfly house puts you right in the mood. You can wander all over, smell the roses and get good ideas for your own garden (haven't reviewed those with the husband yet!)

On our vacation in the Amish country we visited Hershey Gardens in Hershey Pa. Beautiful place! Could not believe how many Rose bushes there are. Nice walking tour of the grounds. Butterfly building was very nice. The butterflies land right on you. If you like flowers and plants this is a must to visit.

I had a wonderful time here. There was so much to look at, and everything was so beautiful. We got a Groupon for admission for 4 for only $24.00 - an amazing deal! It'd be worth it even to pay regular price though! Make sure you visit the Butterfly House - it's a surreal experience, seeing tons of beautiful butterflies... More

Beautiful Gardens. This was my second time visiting the gardens. The first time was spring time when the tulips and magnolia trees were in bloom. This time in the summer when the roses and perineal were out. Both times, gorgeous. It is a great place to walk, relax and just enjoy. There is a simple paved 1 mile loop to... More

We had a fun few hours here. I purchased a Groupon and that made the admission very reasonable. My two young sons had lots of fun in the children's area and especially watching the butterflies. The gardens were gorgeous and the walk was very pleasant.

We stopped by the gardens on a Saturday morning after a few days in Hershey park. I thought it was little bit pricey, but we certainly enjoyed the visit. We have little ones (ages 3 through 5) and they also had fun. There were little areas to explore and a kids section of the garden. The butterfly tent was kind... More

The Gardens are located next to the Hotel Hershey on a hilltop that overlooks the amusement park and the town of Hershey itself. The view is pretty awesome! Admission for the Gardens is $10.50 for adults, $9.50 for seniors (62+), $7.50 for juniors (ages 3-12) and children under 3 are free. (If you are looking to go in the next... More
