The announcement was part of the travel site’s inaugural Travelers' Choice® 2011 Awards. Hershey was the only Pennsylvania-based destination and joined other popular family-friendly award-winning destinations in the U.S., Europe, Canada, Caribbean and Mexico.

Hershey, PA ranked 7th in the amusement park category based on the results gathered from reviewers who traveled with family.  Unlike any other honors, TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice winners are based on millions of real and unbiased reviews and opinions from travelers around the world.
