May be stuck in Hershey over Shabbos. Any suggestions for activities? Any free museums that are open or any other thoughts of places nearby that would be shabbos friendly.

Will most probably feel a bit odd,  but I think Herr's potato chip factory might be done.

For those going to Hershey's chocolate world,  beware that the (free) tour is now closed due to maintenance

I stayed in Lancaster a few times and always used Degel Israel, in the peak summer days they have many minyanim in the morning.

Did anybody ever go to Refreshing mountain ziplines? Their website makes it look amazing (if a bit pricey) and it is very close to Lancaster. Thanks!
