The amazing @Hersheypark Christmas Candylane & Hershey Sweet Lights in @HersheyPA great family fun! #HersheyPA

A family tradition of ours is to make the trek 90 miles up the PA Turnpike every Christmas season to enjoy the festivities at HersheyPark Christmas Candylane . This is a tradition in our family that dates back 20 years (as long as I've been with my husband), his family would visit his sister (who lived in Hershey) and would go over to Hershey Park to enjoy the park at a much less crowded and a lot cooler time of year. I fell in love with it. 
Less crowds means getting on the rides faster and with the temperature being a lot cooler than it is in the summer it means no sweating! Every year since we started going things have progressively gotten better and better.
The Sweetest Place on Earth is truly that. The fun begins in the park in the festive Christmas Candylane where you can ride some awesome rides like The Reese's Xtreme Cup Challenge, The Kissing Tower, Scrambler, Ferris Wheel, sooperdooperLooper, Tea Cups, and much more. The Laugh Track is Heresy's newest coaster, this indoor coaster sends you flying spinning all while lights are flashing and you experiencing fun house laughs!
Need a break from the rides? My suggestion is to head over to the sweet shops and pick up a holiday cupcake or fudge. Of course there is plenty of chocolate and Hershey favorites to go around. Be sure to get a hot chocolate, and make it a deluxe (this tops it with whip cream and more chocolate chips..) It's easily the best hot chocolate I've ever had.
Now that you're full of sweets you'll need to do something before you jump back on the rides, good news there is several events you can take in. You can visit Santa and his reindeer. Did you ever wonder what  these real reindeer look like in person well come visit and find out.
Of course wherever Santa's reindeer are the man in red can not be far... Kids an also visit with Santa! Up next head over to Rudolph's Skating Pond, take in the Littlest Tree this is a wonderful show full of a crazy cast of characters singing a bunch of seasonal favorites. 
Keep an eye out for your favorite Hershey characters these fun characters are decked in their holiday apparel and and cannot wait to take a picture with you! Kids and big kids like myself will have a bast interacting and taking pictures with your favorite candy characters. 
If you'd like to hear a story head over to Christmas Candyland Storytime where one of Santa's elves will tell you a wonderful holiday story. When the sun starts to set and night starts to set in every half hour you'll get to experience Noel. Noel is a light show featuring 200,000 synchronized lights dancing to music. It's a sight to behold. 
Speaking of sights to behold....When your day (or night) is over at Hershey Park you can drive over to the Hershey Sweet Lights. What's that, you might ask? It's 4 million lights that will amaze you and take your breath away. I remember the first time we took our daughter she was 3 and she sat in her car seat with her eye's wide open soaking up all the pretty lights.
For this experience you can come as you are, warm and snuggly in your car as you slowly drive around drive through two miles of wooded trails. Soaking in the beauty of the lights, from character lights to holiday scenes there is so much to look at an enjoy with Sweet Lights. 
If you're looking for a great time, a chance to spend a day (and night) in a really sweet place and if you're in the vicinity of Hershey, you need to head over to experience Christmas Candyland and Sweet Lights. I'm sure that you'll start the same tradition we stated over two decades ago. I will have more Hershey fun to share with you all, from things to do to places to stay, be sure to stay tuned!

Ive never been to Hershey but have always wanted to go. Maybe next year when I head north to see the family!

We've always wanted to via Hershey, but would probably in the summer. If we travel during the winter, it'll be south, not east!
