We visited this park in the middle of a "road trip" vacation after driving more than 12 hours in previous days which really didn't... More

The light show begins at 5:00 pm and we visited on a Monday so for one car it was $20 and well worth it! Tons of beautiful lights and will take about 35 - 40 minutes if you take your time driving through! Sweet lights is a must see if you are visiting Hershey!

They had a deal that you could enter the park the night before so we enjoyed that. She had a... More

went to Hershey park as a child and loved it, haven't been there in years, we went for a concert in the summer, it was hot and humid outside, wouldn't recommend it unless your use to the heat and humidity. was an ok venue for a concert. don't think id go again though.

Always so clean and fun for a family vacation. The lights are beautiful and even though the rides are limited it's a few hours of exciting family time.

Sweet Lights, The Crowning Jewel of Holiday lights……….. Having been to The Mission Hotel and Spa, in Riverside, Calif. we thought that no one could beat their 6 million lights. And if you stayed there, you will find about 50 animated characters throughout their Spanish mission style hotel. Well, we were wrong about one thing. When it comes to lights... More
