“Hershey Gardens is a beautiful serene escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Visited Hershey Gardens in August and it was just beautiful. Spent hours taking pictures and looking at butterflies at the butterfly garden. Could have spent more time, but it was a VERY hot day and it was just unbearable. They do provide parasals for the sun.

“Very beautiful garden!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This garden has the best rose collection I've ever seen! The roses are fragrant, all different shapes, amazing colors. There are also the children's garden, butterfly house and theme gardens that feature a breathtaking assortment of flowers, shrubs and trees. The Gardens definitely worth the trip.

“Beautiful”

The gardens are so pretty and so much to view. The children's garden is fun and the butterfly house is the best.

“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
