A must to see when your in Hershey. We visited mid April and the gardens were all in bloom and just stunning. The butterfly exhibit is fantastic, free flying everywhere and all kinds of beauties to see.

No place like Hershey Gardens at Easter! The flowers, wonderful colors and amazing scents all provided us with memories of days long ago when we visited as children. Thanks for keeping this wonderful spot going all these years!
