Summer Fun

While some may be soaking up the summer sun, you’re looking to come alive in the cool of the night. In the Hershey Harrisburg Region, the party starts at dusk. Accompany your evening meal with a stunning sunset at our outdoor dining spots. Or you can “Kick the Dust Up” in “Paradise City” at blockbuster concerts. Maybe tell tales by the light of a smoky campfire. Or perhaps spend an evening testing lady luck. Whatever you decide, your evenings will shine just as bright as the sunny days that accompany summer.

Open Air Eats

Food tastes better when you’re surrounded by good friends and great environments. Our al fresco vistas are the perfect complement to any appetizer or entree. In Harrisburg, you can find Midtown ambiance on the rooftop of The Millworks, riverfront views at Boro Bar and Grill, and downtown vibes at Café Fresco. In Hershey, perfect patios wait for you at The Mill and the Hershey Pantry. Sit back, relax, and let the conversation, and libations, flow. Keep your tongue on its toes with a taste of summer at our outdoor dining spots.

A-List Artists

Eight huge concerts. One convenient location. Hersheypark Stadium® has hosted the biggest musical acts for years and 2017 is no different. This year’s Summer Concert Series includes Guns & Roses, Luke Bryan, Train, Foreigner, Zac Brown Band, Nickleback, Florida Georgia Line, Matchbox 20, Counting Crows, and the Show of the Summer featuring six of pop music’s hottest acts. Hersheypark Stadium has the added bonus of being a tailgater’s dream. Come early and hang out before the sounds of A-List artists surround you and tens of thousands of your newest friends.  In the heat of the night, you’ll get into the groove with genres that make you rock and roll.

Campers Have S'more Fun

You might think yourself too old for summer camp, but you’re never too old to spend a summer weekend camping. Get lost in the woods and fall asleep under the stars in our region. The sights and sounds of Hersheypark® are never too far away when you are roasting s’mores at HersheyparkSM Camping Resort. Go offline and reconnect with nature in the countryside of Paradise Stream and Little Buffalo State Park. Our campgrounds are fit for casual campers and rugged outdoorsmen. So, gather around the campfire and spend the evening sharing old memories and making new ones.

Double Down

Play it cool with your best poker face at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course. Experience fine dining at Final Cut Steakhouse, riveting rhythms at H Lounge, and great gambling on the casino floor and at the race track. You’ll have a great time betting against your friends – and that’s no bluff!

The hottest days of the year can bring the coolest memories. We’ll be waiting for you and your crew to visit the Hershey Harrisburg Region.
