The Hershey Harrisburg Region is made up of Dauphin and Perry Counties in South Central Pennsylvania and acts as a regional hub of popular nearby destinations like Lancaster, Gettysburg, Philadelphia and Baltimore.
We’re the birthplace of Milton Hershey and his Great American Chocolate Bar. We’re the site of a grand State Capitol that President Teddy Roosevelt deemed "the handsomest building" he'd ever seen. We are those things and so, so much more for all of the families, couples, groups and event planners who visit us year after year.
Sweet Family Fun is the Hershey Harrisburg Region's most salient theme, with one of the nation's best theme parks anchoring the experience.
