When it comes to activities and events, Hershey and Harrisburg have things to do for everyone. Whether it?s a family-fun vacation filled with amusement parks and outdoor recreation or a weekend getaway with the girls designed to indulge your guilty pleasures, you owe it to yourself to see all that central Pennsylvania has to offer.

Most famous for our world-class amusement park, Hersheypark, we are also home to one-of-a-kind experiences like Hershey?s Chocolate World, an eclectic atmosphere along Cocoa Avenue, miles of shopping at the Outlets at Hershey, and the Hershey Bears professional hockey team. And before you arrive, be sure to check in to the many live performances and concert events at the Hershey Theatre, the GIANT Center or Hersheypark Stadium.

There are so many things to do in Harrisburg, Pa that you may need to plan to visit us regularly. For those who like to be on the go, a historical museum, art gallery stroll or winery tour will show you lots of different sides to our region. The Whitaker center in Harrisburg showcases the most unique national touring acts and live performers, and major league baseball players get their start playing for the Harrisburg Senators baseball team.

Harrisburg is also the home of the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show, the largest agricultural exhibition of its kind in the nation. Farmers from all over Pennsylvania come to show their animals and participate in competitions. Livestock are on display for people to interact with and view. In 2004, Harrisburg hosted CowParade, an international public art exhibit that has been featured in major cities all over the world. Fiberglass sculptures of cows are decorated by local artists, and distributed over the city centre, in public places such as train stations and parks. They often feature artwork and designs specific to local culture, as well as city life and other relevant themes.
