During the holidays, Hershey and its attractions are all aglow for Christmas, swapping the water rafts for reindeer and the hot days for hot chocolate! 

Walking in a Hersheypark® Wonderland

Hersheypark® is beautiful year-round, but we love how it twinkles with Christmas lights this season for Hersheypark® Christmas Candylane®! Throughout the park, you’ll find hundreds of holiday decorations, more than 50 family rides and coasters, your favorite Hershey’s Characters in scarves and hats, and even Santa’s reindeer. If you’ve been here at the holidays before, this year is the first time you can overlook the festive sights from the Hershey Triple TowerTM and the SidewinderSM! Be sure to grab a cup of hot cocoa as a warm treat.

All I Want For Christmas is to See Hershey Sweet Lights®

Hershey locals know it’s almost Christmas when crews set up the Hershey Sweet Lights®. We lost count of how many twinkling lightbulbs make up this holiday drive-thru spectacular! With more than 600 illuminated, animated displays lining two miles of wooded trails, the family can enjoy a winter wonderland from the comfort of the car.

Rockin’ Around Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction

Whether it’s a stop before or after Hersheypark® or a special trip while you’re in town seeing the family, Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction is bustling with sweet holiday fun! Learn about how The Hershey Company makes their delectable delights, and take home an armful of stocking stuffers and gifts for everyone on your list. And Santa Claus makes a special seasonal appearance to jot down your Christmas wish list.

Run, Run Rudolph to the Holiday Sales

We've heard that Santa shops in Hershey to find the best deals for his enormous list! While you’re in town for the festive attractions, the Tanger Outlets Hershey is your one-stop holiday shopping destination. It has shoes, handbags, candles, sweaters, toys, and dozens of name-brand shops for the guys and gals on your gift list.

Have a Cup of Cheer

An exciting holiday outing in the Hershey Harrisburg Region wouldn't be complete without a chalice of Mad Elf at Tröegs Independent Brewing. This once-a-year creation is bursting with the Christmas flavor of ripened cherries, raw honey and cocoa, plus notes of cinnamon, clove, and allspice. Cheers!

Nowhere else in the region captures the magic of the season quite like Hershey! Whether you've come here for a getaway or you need things to do while you're visiting the family, we wish you good tidings this holiday season!
