Known as The Sweetest Place on Earth, Hershey is named after the town founder and confectionery tycoon, Milton S. Hershey, who built the world's largest chocolate factory of his time. A humanitarian and philanthropist, he felt a moral responsibility to develop the town, providing it with parks, transportation and other facilities. Hershey's model town of over 14,000 residents is a census-designated place (CDP) in Dauphin County. It lies 14 miles east of Harrisburg.

Stop and smell the roses! Don't be surprised when some of them smell like chocolate--after all, this is Chocolatetown. At the 23-acre Hershey Garden on Hotel Road, you'll find 11 distinctly themed gardens. The Historic Rose Garden is a riot of colors from over 275 varieties, while the Children's Garden is a magical place where adventure awaits.

Let them entertain you! Watch the Big 33 Football Classic at the Hersheypark Stadium, cheer for the home hockey team, the Hershey Bears, at the Giant Center, and sing along with your favorite band at The Star Pavilion. With star-studded concerts and adrenaline-fueled sporting events happening practically every week, you'll never get bored in this town.
Experience the good old days! They don't make cars the same way anymore. That is why the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum, recognized as one of the world's top 16 automotive museums, is a favorite destination for locals and visitors. For an evening at the movies, or perhaps a Broadway show, there's nothing quite like the Hershey Theater with its gilded ceiling, an opulent piece of architecture dating from the 1930s.
The real estate market is on the upswing! The median home value has shown steady growth in recent years and is forecast to climb by 2.5 percent in the coming year. There is no better time than now to ride the market with rent to own homes and houses for sale in desirable neighborhoods like Woodland Avenue and around Fishburn Road.
Earn from rent! With the current market favoring buyers, getting a home or condo unit could turn out to be an investment with great returns. Aside from the appreciating property values, you'll easily find someone to rent out your place in this tourist hot spot, especially in areas near recreational sites, like the Hershey Golf and Country Club, as well as the charming residential district between W Chocolate and Cocoa Avenues.
