We all have people in our lives who deserve the perfect gift, so we invite you to explore our shopping destinations including outlets, shopping centers, shopping malls, farmers markets, and specialty retailers to get started on your gift list. Whether you’re into antiques and treasures, edible souvenirs like jellies, jams, craft beer, wine, and spirits, or CHOCOLATE, we know you’ll find something sweet!
With more than 60 stores among the likes of GAP, Under Armour, Vera Bradley, and Coach, you might be coming to Tanger Outlets for the shopping alone! Shopping in Hershey & Harrisburg is marked by convenience with the Shoppes at Susquehanna Marketplace located off I-81 and Harrisburg Mall nearby I-83 & I-283. We’d recommend, of course, making your trip an overnighter where you can kick back after a long day of browsing and show off your new shoes at brunch the next morning! (Speaking of an overnighter – don’t forget that gifts don’t have to be material. Give the Gift of Travel by making plans to visit our region with friends or family!)
Don’t think you can leave town without buying some chocolate for your family and friends! Hershey’s Chocolate World has Hershey’s Largest Candy Store with seasonal varieties, hard-to-find candies, and supersize sweets like half-pound Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! For something with a more intimate, artisan feel, try Chocolates by Tina Marie, just 10 minutes down the road in Hummelstown. Looking for more sweet treats? Explore the Chocolate & More Sweet Treat Trail to find bakeries, artisan breads, and ice cream!
Sometimes the best souvenirs are the unique finds you'll never stumble upon at a big box store. For the kid who has everything, pick up a fun find at Toys on the Square. Book lovers can browse the stacks for a rare title at Midtown Scholar Bookstore. Local artists are featured at The Millworks, an all-in-one art gallery, restaurant, and brewery just a block up from Midtown Scholar.
While shopping for others, don’t forget to grab a little something for yourself! Remember to leave some room in your suitcase for a few jars of local jams and jellies. Our region’s proximity to lush farmland yields some of Pennsylvania’s best produce and ingredients. Take home local flavor fresh from the Broad Street Market in Harrisburg or Fresh Market at Hershey Towne Square. Our region has more than two dozen vineyards, breweries, and distilleries who bottle up the best beverages for you to enjoy when you get home.
