Looking to spend 3 days near Hershey park.  Asides from the actual amusement park, what else would you recommend doing?
Hershey Chocolate world has a "make your own candy bar" anyone know if it is kosher?  Any recommendations on where to stay?

Thanks

There are some dairy and meat kosher booths at the major attractions under Baltimore's Star-K Hashgacha.

This thread is all questions, no answers.  Seems like plenty of ddfers have been to Lancaster, can anyone comment on their hotels?  Most of the local hotels seem pretty dinky.  Is it worth is to stay at the Four Points in York, PA (30 minutes away) or the Sheraton in Harrisburg (about 40 minutes away)?
If you don't care why would you comment?

I don't know about 9/5 but during the summer you don't have to ore-arrange. Either way the shul in Lancaster should have a minyan.
