Chocolate World

Today we went to Chocolate World in Hershey, PA. We learned about the man who built and founded Hershey, Milton S. Hershey. He was a man who wanted to keep his employees happy.

We took the trolly tour seeing the home where he grew up, the school that he founded for under privledged boys, the hospital where he died and other interesting parts of the town. Make sure that if retired military ask for your discount along with the senior discount.

Chocolate World has a free tour that takes you through the making of chocolate. You ride along a track in a car that seats 5 and they show all steps in the process of making the chocolate. It is very interesting and really informative.

Later this afternoon we decided to go and find the Hollywood Casino in Grantville, PA. Russ played on $5 for about an hour and I lost $25 but we did have a good time and the casino is very nice. We will go back at sometime.
