Winter in Hershey & Harrisburg


It might be cold outside, but the Hershey Harrisburg Region has fun all year round! Experience Christmas in Hershey when Santa and his reindeer stop by and your favorite attractions at Hersheypark® are transformed into a winter wonderland at Christmas CandylaneSM. Head indoors to explore our art galleries and museums where everyone can learn something new. Take a brewery tour complete with free samples or stop by a few wineries for some sippable souvenirs. Shop ‘til you drop at our outlets, antique markets, and independent shops where you'll find truly unique treasures. Outdoor enthusiasts and active families can embrace the cold and have some chilly fun at Roundtop Mountain Resort or take a walk around ZooAmerica®, where the animals are most active in cooler temperatures.
