Hershey’s Chocolate World

We took a 2-hour coach ride to Hershey, Pennsylvania. As the name “Hershey” suggests, the town is built by Milton S. Hershey, the world famous chocolate maker. He believed that workers who were treated fairly and who lived in a comfortable, pleasant environment would be better workers. Accordingly, he set upon building an infrastructure to take care of the people who were employed by his company, drawing up plans for a model community housing for executives and ordinary workers alike, schools, churches, theme parks, recreational facilities and a trolley system.

World’s largest Hershey bar.
