A Valentine's Day thought

The sweetest place on earth Hershey PA kicks off “Chocolate-Covered February”. This is a month-long festival and a town-wide celebration of everything chocolate. There are plenty of events and activities designed for all ages and tastes. This February’s menu of options is even more decadent than past celebrations. A sweet new addition for 2010 is “The Great Hershey Quest,” on which guests grab their Hershey passports and take off for a spectacular journey around Chocolate Town, U.S.A. They’ll encounter sweet cupcakes, admission to area attractions, and chocolate-themed adventures during their tour. Passports can be purchased at The Hershey Story, The Museum on Chocolate Avenue. Then, guests simply collect stamps at Hershey’s Chocolate World, ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park, and The Hotel Hershey for a chance to win the "Ultimate Chocolate Getaway," which includes VIP access in Hershey and a year's supply of chocolate. Also new for 2010 is the introduction of Chocolate-Covered February packages that sweeten a stay at The Hotel Hershey or Hershey Lodge on any date during the month of February.

Surprise your sweetie with a romantic "chocolate" getaway. For reservations contact your travel agent.
