Today is moving day as we like to call it. We packed up and secured the coach for a trip to Jonestown, PA, the next stop on our route. This was a little shorter trip than we normally have so we stopped into a Blue Beacon Truck Wash and washed the dirt, grime and bugs off of the coach. We just got settled in at the Jonestown/Hershey NE KOA.  This KOA is very nice, well landscaped, with nice people – we had no issues, but it pales in comparison to our previous KOA. The campground is only a mile off I-78 or I-81 and about 25 minutes northeast of Hershey. Some of their sites are next to the Swatara Creek.

We decided to drive into Hershey and take the Hershey Chocolate Factory Tour. We opted for the free tour that takes you through video and live displays explaining how the cacao bean is processed into Hershey chocolate. After the tour we had lunch in their food court which serves the basic “theme park menu”. We did however find some cheese, apple, hummus dishes. Now for dessert! As you can imagine the factory store is loaded with everything Hershey in all sizes, shapes, and types of sweets and paraphernalia. We purchased a few items, including some new organic Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

On our way back to the campsite, we stumbled upon Hershey Gardens. This was a great find. The garden is beautiful with thousands of roses and lush landscaping with other types of flowers, trees and shrubs. This is a great platform for a little peaceful meditation away from the chocoholics!
