Hi everyone!

Has anyone ever gone to Hershey on their honeymoon? The idea doesn't seem too exciting to me but my fiance wants to spend our honeymoon in Pennsylvania and he said that Hershey would be fun. Is it?
What would be a fun romantic city to go to in PA not only to have some quality time alone but also to sightsee, anyway?

Thank you!

Haven't been to Hershey, but how about:

Lancaster County/Amish Country;

Poconos;

New Hope/Doylestown (northern Philly exurbs).

Although Hershey is interesting, definitely not where I would want to go for a honeymoon. If you are staying in PA, try either Jim Thorpe, PA or our favorite little town in the world, Wellsboro, PA. We started our honeymoon out in Wellsboro.

I think Hershey is a good idea. You have the Hotel Hershey, spa, lots of nice restaurants, outlets and Chocolate World is really fun for all ages. Plus it's a short drive to downtown Harrisburg for fine dining/night life and Lancaster's Amish country.

I wouldn't recommend any place in Pennsylvania. If your budget allows then I would recommend Boston.

Go to a beach in Florida where it's warm. I know a lot of nice places on the Gulf Coast.

Anywhere in NE for that matter. We started in Wellsboro PA and drove from there to VT, NH, MA, and then ended in the Poconos.

depends on what you'd like. Philly would be pretty high on my list (esp on or near rittenhouse sq or old city), plenty to see and do and plenty of good restaurants, hotels, and bnb's. (poster didn't say they were getting married in the winter). I've never been to wellsboro but a lot of people seem to like it, there's the grand canyon of Pa up there. depends on what kind of sight seeing you like to do, I suppose. my parents did the route 6 road trip and liked it. if cities aren't your thing, chestnut hill has a cute hotel.

I'm only going to guess that your wedding will be in the warm weather, so I will suggest Conneaut Lake a nice lake side resort town and the hotel there is
an old victorian resort hotel that does not have A/C because it don't need it the breezes off the lake is cool and the lake is very romantic.
Now there is a nice town called Foxburg that has a nice hotel right beside the Allegheny River and decent restaurant right next door and is within reasonable driving distance to alot of different activities and Cooks forest is a nice place to spend the day or a few days lots of hiking trails in the area alot of different recreations to do.
Now Another place to check out is Pittsburgh there is alot there to do plus some real nice Hotels and there is Kennywood Park real fun place and been around since the 1880's and is a decent size park and can easily spend a day there, there is also some real nice museums in the area and the Andy Warhol Museum ,plus there is alot of places there to see where major well known movies was filmed the Pitt U campus is beautiful to check out, Point state park if you get to Heinz Field you can go on a tour of the facilities (any sports fan will love that), Pirate games is real affordable, just check out the visitor sites and you will see all they have there.
Check out Western, PA it is a very popular place to spend a honeymoon or vacation, and there is alot places there to do sightseeing and it is well worth it especially if you start at Pittsburgh head north stop at Conneaut and then head to Niagara Falls that is only a couple hours away from there so you can have a great travel honeymoon and see some beautiful country also.
Have fun and post pics of it when your back .
