A Hershey Honeymoon
Possibly the "sweetest" honeymoon on earth, can be found at the 1930s era, award-winning Hotel Hershey in Hershey PA. The posh, 278-room lends credence to the old adage that, “all good things come in small packages.”
Anytime of year, this is a great honeymoon destination and the recent addition of 10 new cottages, lining the dense woods is just the, "frosting on the cake," so to speak.
A winter honeymoon is special and promises additional “warm and fuzzy” memories thanks to a unique chocolate bar and a hotel lobby offering a retreat from bitter weather with a magnificent fieldstone four-sided fireplace surrounded by oversized leather furniture
Snow covered, rolling hills and miles of groomed trails promise lots of frolicking in winter, yet give way to miles of hiking in summer. A new all-weather ice skating rink is open year-round and further recreation can be found in indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a recreation complex offering basketball, volleyball and lighted tennis courts.
In summer, Segway tours allow you to glide throughout the property on a battery-operated, balancing transporter.
Accommodations are luxurious and range from elegant rooms, sleek suites and
cozy wood-side cottages.
Delectable dining can be found in a variety of restaurants with award-winning wine lists highlighting a wide-range of cuisine. Be sure to try their signature chocolate cocktails and their decadent chocolate desserts.
As you might expect, Chocolate inspires a delectable series of spa treatments. Leading the list: Whipped Cocoa Bath, Chocolate Bean Polish, and the Chocolate Fondue Wrap.
Several packages are available throughout the year and they change seasonally. Most include deluxe accommodations, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, a full breakfast and more.
The well-equipped fitness center (personal trainers are available) is an added draw but for outdoor enthusiasts, a variety of sports beckon – especially in winter. All equipment, including toboggans, coasters, snow tubes, snowshoes and cross-country skis, is available for rent.
The hotel’s golf course is perfect for cross-country skiing and the winding trails encourage romantic strolls, anytime of year.
While there, visit Hershey’s Chocolate World to indulge in the largest collection of Hershey Foods products anywhere.
Check out the design-your-own plume Hershey’s Kisses station, featuring hand-written-in-chocolate mementos and baked-fresh chocolate cookies - and a cup of hot chocolate, of course - before heading back to your honeymoon haven.
This resort offers the best of both worlds: romance and chocolate.
