Hi. Myself, husband and two children boy 12, girl 11 are planning a weekend trip from Connecticut to Pennsylvania. My husband is interested in visiting the Amish Country and the kids would love a day or day and a half at Hershey. We're looking at the 2nd or 3rd weekend in May.
My main question is what is the driving distance from the Lancaster Area to Hershey?
I was thinking we'd leave Friday morning, drive through to Lancaster...sightsee, have dinner and stay the night there (preferably with a nice indoor pool) and then leave Saturday around lunchtime for Hershey. Maybe do Hershey Saturday night (reduced admission?) and then all day on Sunday. Drive home Sunday night or Monday morning depending on what time we leave the park and how tired we are.
Any hotel/restaurant suggestions would also be appreciated! Thanks so much in advance.
