Family-Friendly Activities in Hershey

Hershey, Pennsylvania has become a premier destination for family getaways. In addition to Hersheypark, there are numerous activities to keep the whole family happy.

“The Falconry Experience by The Hotel Hershey” gives families an opportunity to learn about raptor conservation and the important role that the winged predators play in nature. Learn about these majestic birds through outdoor free-flight demonstrations, a simulated ground pursuit demonstrating the raptor’s amazing hunting techniques, and enjoy an opportunity to get up-close and personal with a bird for a complimentary photo.

Hershey also offers four distinct golf courses within the Hershey Golf Collection, including Spring Creek Golf Course which was the nation’s first public golf course created for players under age 18, so it’s perfect for the whole family! Spring Creek also offers educational programs, clinics, and junior golf camps, and competition.
