Baltimore or Hershey's PA

Family will be coming back to DC from NYC on March 22, 2013. We have 1 full day to spend before departing DC. 2 adults, 17 yr old, and 9 yr old. Trying to decide on going to Baltimore or Hershey's. Suggestions welcome.

Not sure if Hershey Park will be open in March, and if so, it will only be weekends.

What are you looking for specifically? The two places couldn't really be any more different.

Hershey is opening the last weekend in March so this is not an option. If you are departing from DC possibly you may want to explore that area.

If you are interested in Baltimore if you can let us know what things you like to do we can give better suggestions.

The Aquarium in the Inner Harbor is fun and would appeal to an older and younger child.

We enjoy visiting Chocolate World, which is what would be open at Hershey that weekend. We sometimes add ZooAmerica...but it would be a stretch to fill a full day.

If you want a tourist experience, Baltimore would be the best. Unless you're willing to consider Gettysburg...it would be on the way and nice to visit in the 150th anniversary year.
