“Relaxing...out of the amusement park mode”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Visiting hershey, this is a relaxing way to get out of the amusement park chaos. Your kids will like it, if the butterfly house is open and filled, but only for about an hour. If you are looking for a romantic, relaxing place to spend an afternoon or evening, its a beautiful setting

“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.

“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.
