At The Next Left Off The Hershey Highway, Your Apartment!
If Hershey, Pennsylvania needs an introduction, you can bet it'd be no larger than a Hershey's kiss. This town made famous by the even more famous chocolate makers sharing the same name is also home to regular folks with regular jobs, many of whom in all likelihood rarely consume chocolate. In fact there's a good chance most of them shun it completely, in the same way residents of Anaheim probably avoid Disneyland like the plague. But we confess we're merely speculating here.
Hershey, referred to as the "Sweetest Place On Earth," contains less than 14,000 people. It would appear that if there's a rumor going around about free chocolate upon moving to Hershey, it hasn't gained much traction. But of course you yourself are immune to such sugary bribes and surely have a more practical reason to call the southern end of the Keystone State home.
So yea, "The Sweetest Place on Earth," but also "Chocolatetown, USA." The first one's got a better ring to it and comes across like the product of a marketing campaign, but the second one's a little more direct. But directly relevant to your search of "Hershey, PA" is the city's other qualities, not merely its calorie count. So let us proceed.
Not far from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Hershey's community is not terribly big but no small town fry either. Though the city once had its own airport between the years of 1944 to 1981, it now relies on Harrisburg International Airport to get residents to and fro above the clouds. By rail, Amtrak's Keystone Service connects commuters to not only Harrisburg but Elizabethtown and Middletown too. You could say the service is truly about town. Er...
For a town the size of Hershey it's a little surprising that it can tout both a professional hockey and...well, lacrosse team. Ok so lacrosse isn't such a big deal in the states, but it's got a long history so perhaps it's about time we all show it a bit more respect, eh? Hockey fans shout for the Hershey Bears, and lacrosse fans for the Hershey Haymakers. Everybody's a fan of something, it's just a matter of hand finding, and fitting glove.
Hershey is served by the Derry Township School District, the Milton Hershey School for underprivileged kids, and The Vista School for kids diagnosed with autism. The Milton Hershey School needs little explanation as to its founders and financial backers, but it's notable alumni include NFL star Joe Senser, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Nellie King, and terrorist hunter Michael J. San Filippo, also known as Michael Sanford. We've had trouble digging up information on this guy. But then maybe he likes it that way?
Hershey's quality of life is strongly solid and solidly strong. You'll find parks, libraries, bus stops and the like out here and feel well served by its community spirit. How do we know? Well with a website this snazzy, how could it not be true?
Wow, you'd think the city was wholly owned by the Hershey company. Maybe it is.
Let Hershey Darken Your Doorstep
But just in case it doesn't come to you, you're going to have to go to it. And boy (and girl, to be fair) will it be worth it.
It'd be easy to get the wrong idea about Hershey. The name is so synonymous with the popular candy that it would appear everything and anything in Hershey sporting the city's title is some kind of chocolate exhibition. But it ain't true, and the citizens of Hershey are proud to be much more the renaissance resident than the city's namesake would suggest. There's the Hersheypark Arena, an indoor multi-purpose facility that sees hockey, wrestling, and a whole lot more occur under its roof. But also the Hershey Theatre, a prime location for performance art of all stripes, from dancing to drama, music and other lively forms of entertainment.
You can't eat your pudding if you don't eat your meat, or in this case your chocolate if not your...well, that's up to you really. With more food options than you could ever fully sample, you'll be busy enough settling on a destination for dinner. The Bear's Den is a casual sports bar type joint specializing in hockey n' hot wings for the discerning grub lover. And for seafood? Devon Seafood Grill appears to be where it's at, if by "it" you mean Block Island Swordfish and other sea-dwelling delights.
Refer to that snazzy website for even more fun-derful options for just about everything under the sun. And the wrapper.
