And roads named Cocoa and Chocolate?! We started our day in Hershey with a visit to Hershey Gardens.
In a word? Gorgeous! And of course, I took a ton of pictures. Here are just few of my favorites I took at the gardens....
See full size photos in my album here.
And my favorite flower picture:
After wandering around Hershey Gardens, we ate lunch and headed over to the Hershey Story. We took a class at the Chocolate Labs....
Aren't the hats awesome?! lol
Where we learned how to taste chocolate and made our own candy bars:
My brother couldn't control himself and ate his upon walking out of the chocolate lab when he knew we were going to do this next....
The rest of the Hershey Story is a big museum about how Hershey's chocolate came to be. Really nice museum:
The picture is really blurry, but you can see some of the cool displays like the 12 foot crystal lamp!
After Hershey Story, we headed over to Chocolate World... the "sweetest place on Earth." There was a LOT of chocolate there!! We taunted my poor husband with pics like this:
This is just one small corner of the store!!! yikes!!!! :)
And then I bought some yummy stuff to send home to him.
I look definitely look forward to going back to Hershey and seeing some of the stuff I missed including Hershey Park and ZooAmerica. Up next in my trip recap will be the Battlefield Tour -- Gettysburg, Valley Forge and Brandywine!

Thanks for hanging in for all the pics!! :)
