“Winter walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Even in winter the gardens are very nice for an outing. Depending on packages with local lodging, the gardens may be included in your stay. Well maintained walking paths and many varieties of plants. We happened to be there when a State Championship Football game was being held in Hershey Stadium. The view was awesome and you could see the players and fans are hear the roar of the crowd. Must have been a great game.

“Gorgeous Flowers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Went during the fall and had a ball walking around the gardens and grounds of all the gorgeous flowers that were grown and taken care of. Absolutely beautiful scenery and the air smells like roses and chocolate...super cool.

“Best rose garden in the East.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Hershey gardens comprise about 20+ acres of spectacular flower, shrub, and tree gardens. Beautiful landscaping, complete with numerous theme gardens make for an enjoyable time for the whole family. This is the finest collection of roses in the East

“So beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Butterfly house was the highlight along with the rose garden. We had a great tour - what I thought might be a tad boring turned out to be terrific, even for teenagers.

“What could be better?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you won the lottery and hired your own gardeners, your garden wouldn't be as good as the one at Hershey! Be sure to get into the Butterfly Room.
