I live in Harrisburg and have visited the "Hershey Rose Gardens" (as locals call it) on four occasions. Each and every visit was a truly enjoyable experience. The gardens would cater not only to couples, but also families with young children. The fee for the Hershey Gardens is $10.50 for adults (13-61) and $7.5 for juniors (3-12). The Hershey Gardens...

This is one of the best kept secrets of Hershey. It's a short walk from the Hershey hotel and has hundreds of species of plants. There are rose, oak, pine, and memorial gardens on the property, as well as many architectural structures make sure to stop her!

Not as grand as Long Wood Gardens but the butterfly house was exceptional. It made for a nice outing.

We didn't expect to see much in the way of blooms during our recent Mid December Sunday stroll through the gardens, but we didn't expect the the place to be in such disarray either. Large areas were screened off while workers were busily building the new conservatory, even on Sunday, and two guys were using loud leaf blowers through the... More

I upgraded my Hershey Park pass to include the Hershey Gardens. It's too expensive to do as an attraction alone if you have a child. You never know how long they'll last. It is gorgeous and changes with the season. We love the butterfly garden. They land on you! The gardens change with the seasons. There is a music making... More

We visited the Santa Gardens last week as part of our Christmas visit. A little steep charging $10 per adult considering almost half of the garden is closed for the season.........but want to acknowledge the services of one of the staff there. We have a dedicated brick in my wife's memory on the lower atrium. While closed last week, my... More

I will definitely going next year my children loved it so much there's nothing I could wish for more at Hershey gardens. Next year they said that they may have better chocolates sprayers because this year they broke. We had lots and lots of fun. Very spacious and big, even more fun.

The children loved this. It was so exciting for them to see so much chocolate everywhere. We could easily make this trip again in the near future.

We visited the "pumpkin glow" at the Hershey Gardens on Hallowee night. It was a lovely walk through the gardens, viewing the glowing pumpkins and watching kids trick-or-treat. Granted it was mostly at night, so it was difficult to see what the gardens would look like during the day - but the view down toward the town was great.
