Roadtrip to Hershey, PA

a As mentioned in my other blog, we went on a road trip to Hershey, PA  and spent a couple of days there.  We got charged  over a hundred bucks when we cancelled our reservation for our Virginia Beach and  Busch Garden  trips.  It was bummer but unexpected things happen.  The kennel  that supposed to take care of our dogs  got an emergency so they had to close the business for the time being which affected us also.  We did not find a place to take care of our dogs  that time but  luckily, we have found  a place  at a later date and was able to  do a road trip.  
 Anyway, here are some of the photos taken during our road trip.  We  took a quick photo before we left,  Even though I always take pictures  every time we go on the same road, I can't help but click  the camera as hubby drives to keep myself entertained.
 I dunno what's in the tunnel that always captivate me.  To me tunnel represents excitement, I know that's weird but that's always how I feel when  we go through tunnels.
 U would love to go on a Pittsburgh River Cruise via the Gateway Clipper Fleet.  It would be nice to see the  Pittsburgh  are on a total different route, the river.
 Road trips are fun especially when you have well-travelled kids.  Our kids  share the same passion as we do with traveling so we don't really have any problem with them when we are on the road.  The great thing about it educating the kids of what you see on the road.  Like this pile of sand, they usually ask what this is for and we  explain to them about it.
 You know that you are in Pittsburgh when you see one bridge after another.
 I told you, there's something about tunnels .. hahaha!
See, there's always  light at the end of the tunnel which is a great thing.
 I love good signs like this church.  I mean, let's face it, road trips  involves risks so it is always  a good feeling when you feel protected on the road.
 Aside from tunnels, silos on the farm  is also an interest of mine when it comes to photography subject.
Sometimes people would look at us weirdly when we take a picture during rest stops but hey, who cares, lol.  We're making memories here so what they  think doesn't bother us.  Well, it does bother my husband from time to time but he goes along with us.  I am sure, the kids will appreciate all these when they  are older and have their own families.  They will have something to look back to.

It looks like you have a lot of good quality family time, which I think is the most important! We love to travel too. I have not been there before, but I am trying to go as many places as I can! Thanks for the post!

We were there in July, too, and loved it there. I was really surprised at all the farm land there was in that area.

LOL. I'm sure your husband is like, "Let's go already!" Husbands are like that. They like to get where they're going as fast as possible. ;)

After being relocated halfway across the country, I really miss Hershey, PA. My kids were so used to going to Hershey Park several times thought the year (especially Christmas!!) glad you got to have some fun with your whole family and I'm sure your kids will have great memories too :)

I didn't see anything when I went to Hershey except the theme park lol. We stayed in a cheapp hotel half hour away and drove to there early morning. I fell asleep the second we got in the car, but what a nice area! The people working at Hershey Park were all very friendly, so I'm guessing the rest of the locals are like that as well.

Looks like you guys had a really fun road trip!! I haven't been to Hershey, PA since I was a kid but I remember it being tons of fun :)

Oh how much fun! I went to Hershey Park many years ago. I think I was 13 years old. I'd love to go back. I bet a lot has changed since then.

Hershey Park is great. I love how the entire area smells like chocolate from the time you get anywhere near it. We always go in Chocolate World when we visit.

Great to see you guys had a great time on your road trip to PA. It was just sad that you had to pay a fee when you cancelled your reservation to Virginia Beach.

I love tunnels too! You're right... there's something exciting about them... just knowing there's an end to it is a great metaphor for dark/troubled times in our lives.

Nancy Lustri said...

You are right about the bridges in Pittsburgh. There are so many! lol I love how you document the entire trip (including rest stops). That's a great idea! We always stop at one in Angola, PA and we don't have one picture. Next time! :) Great photos! Enjoyed!
