There are some things to keep in mind before planning the trip to Hershey. First, you want to make sure you are going during the time of year that is best for you. If you are going in the fall or winter, you can see the Hershey Bears play hockey, but there won't be much to do in the amusement park. Obviously, the times of busiest visitation to the town is during the spring and summer. If you want to avoid enormous crowds and lines, you should avoid going during busy holiday weekends and weeks. You should also check the weather to make sure your trip will be enjoyable and not rained out. Also, you should check the official website for Hershey .
