 This isn’t your normal candy store, so make sure you’re strapped in. A year later, Milton Hershey constructed a baseball pavilion, and a year later, he opened the site that would become Hershey Park. The park has added a water park, The Boardwalk at Hershey Park, and rides named after popular candy favorites, and even a zoo. All since the first ride, the merry-go-round, was established in 1908. You’ll almost work up an appetite trying to figure out how to do everything.

New York City
