Don’t tell the other seasons, but fall might just be the most beautiful time of year to visit the Hershey Harrisburg Region. Brilliant colors paint the mountainside, while cool mornings and crisp nights make way for breathtaking sunrises and sensational sunsets. And the region is buzzing with a bounty of things to do, from distinctive to delicious! We do fall better!
Harvest the best of our region’s gardens and farms without getting your hands dirty. Our farm to table establishments pride themselves on designing delicious menus that make the most of the season’s fresh and local ingredients. The Mill in Hershey serves up in a distinctive atmosphere within the restored walls of a historic feed mill. For farm-fresh taste with a city vibe, visit Harrisburg’s award-winning restaurant Home 231, nestled a block from the State Capitol Building. Head to Midtown Harrisburg to experience, The Millworks, a restaurant-meets-brewery-meets-art-gallery mash-up with a ‘hyper-local’ approach. From kale to pale ale, The Vegetable Hunter in Harrisburg pairs vegan and vegetarian eats with boutique brews.
When it comes to craft beer, our region has the breweries you’ll want to raise a glass to! You might have tried Tröegs at home, but we’re sure it tastes better here after you’ve taken the brewery tour! At Zeroday Brewing Company in Midtown Harrisburg, sample their flagship brews infused with eclectic ingredients like habaneros or hazelnuts (not in the same glass!). If you're looking for dinner and a craft beer flight, try Appalachian Brewing Company, which serves a full menu of flavorful fare and brew pairings. If you've been here before, get here again because these breweries are always barreling small batches of creativity! Get 'em while they're HOP!
Wine flies when you’re having fun at the vineyards in the Hershey Harrisburg Region! Spend a day or two (or three!) sipping your way through the region and mingling with the winemakers and brewers behind the magic. In Hershey, be sure to stop by Cullari Vineyards for a bottle of their award-winning chocolate wine, Coco Nostra. If you also like craft beers, head over to The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey with robust rotation of beers, wines, and ciders. There is never a dull moment at Spring Gate Vineyard where guests enjoy a never-ending schedule of festivals, feasts, events, and creative libations like wine slushies and beer milkshakes. Escape to the countryside at Bucks Valley Winery and Vineyards to take in the scenic views of Pennsylvania’s foliage paired with fine wine and food, fresh from their brick oven.
