The Region

Pennsylvania's Hershey Harrisburg Region (HHR) consists of two counties, Dauphin and Perry, located in the south eastern quadrant of the Commonwealth approximately 105 miles west of Philadelphia and 204 miles east of Pittsburgh. The area is centrally located to a number of popular and world-famous travel & tourism destinations in Pennsylvania including Hershey, Lancaster, Gettysburg, and Philadelphia. In addition to being the home of Harrisburg, the capital city of Pennsylvania, the region is only 80 miles from Baltimore, 120 miles from the nation's capitol Washington, DC., and 170 miles from New York City.

This is the birthplace of Milton Hershey and his Great American Chocolate Bar. We’re also the site of a grand State Capitol Complex deemed a "Palace of Art" and which President Teddy Roosevelt referenced as "the handsomest building I ever saw" during his speech at the building's dedication on October 4, 1906.

We are those things and so, so much more for the more than 10 million families, couples, groups and event attendees who visit us every 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. Hersheypark®'s coasters paint the Hershey skyline, and from there, families fan out around the region to the many interactive museums, family-friendly festivals and exhibits, sports events and campgrounds. 

Urban Eclectic is a vibe that continues to trend for couples and young  singles looking for a place bursting with new restaurants and collaborative arts initiatives that stand alongside old favorites that remain cornerstones of the city experience. From farm-to table to small plates and Sunday brunch; from fine steakhouse dining to wine bars to whiskey bars, a visit here is always capped with great food and atmosphere.    

The Susquehanna River, lush Vineyards and renowned Appalachian Trail create a Great Outdoors setting fit for any adventure. Each season plays host to events and activities that allow visitors to relax and recharge in the fresh outdoor air.
