Winter Family Friendly Events


A new year means new adventures. New experiences. New memories that will become golden, unforgettable family stories. Start that story in the Hershey Harrisburg Region!

On one hand, there is no time like the present to start planning your next getaway. On the other, there is no time like the present to TAKE that family getaway. Don’t let the cold keep you huddled up at home. All those new fuzzy socks and matching hats and scarves that Santa brought? Put ‘em on and head to Hershey and Harrisburg for a fun family winter getaway.



Help the kids get back into the swing of school days with a visit to the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts, where hands-on exhibits will open up their minds to the way science is part of our everyday lives. How about a little old-fashioned fun with Saturday morning cartoons at Midtown Cinema? Check their schedule for classics too and see an old family favorite on the big screen.



Hershey’s coasters are quiet this time of year, and that makes it the perfect time to take a deeper look into the life of the man who built the town. The life of Milton S. Hershey is chronicled at The Hershey Story, the Museum on Chocolate Avenue. The beautiful Hotel Hershey® and the Hershey Theatre stand as evidence of Hershey’s vision of happy, healthy employees and a successful town.




When the snow is falling, a winter family trip to Roundtop Mountain Resort means a day full of skiing, snowboarding and tubing on the slopes. Chill out for a while!
