Hershey Gardens is a large display of flowers and gardens. Many themes of flowers make for an unforgettable setting. And don't forget the butterfly house, where butterflies fly freely aroung and may even land on you. I honestly haven't seen the Gardens in summer since 2009 (but write about what I remember).

We really enjoyed this Rose Garden. It's well done and much bigger than it first appeared. Set aside at least two hours for a visit there. The butterfly house has some really beautiful butterflies. Highly recommended.

Even though there were not many flowers in bloom, the Hershey Gardens was beautiful. Nice trails to walk around. Looking forward to go back in the Springtime.

The gardens are lovely and ever changing. Just nice to be able to walk the paths, relax and enjoy the exhibits. Love the butterfly House and they usually have an interesting exhibit so keeps it fresh. Great place for nature lovers.

We really enjoyed touring the Hershey Gardens in late August. The butterfly house was incredible. There were so many different kinds of butterflies, and many did not appear to be afraid of us. I am so glad we came here after visiting Hershey Park. The beautiful Hershey hotel is nearby.

I recently moved and now live an easy hour from this place and it was so delightful that I decided it was worth joining at the end of my first visit in July. Came back recently from second visit and was fascinated with what is apparently an annual exhibition of Bonsai. I'm looking forward to visiting during the holiday and... More
