That pretty much sums up our road trip this past weekend! It was such a nice mini weekend getaway. We headed out bright and early Saturday morning. We were going to leave Friday night, but decided it would have been much too rushed to try to get packed and out the door after work. So Saturday morning it was. The sun was shining, we were hopped up on coffee, and zooming down the turnpike to Harrisburg.
After lunch, we went directly across the street to HERSHEY PARK! I haven't been to Hershey Park since I was wee little. I looove chocolate, so this was uber exciting. I was probably more excited than some of the 5 year olds there... don't care! And you better believe we road the Chocolate Tour Ride. We maaaay have been the only couple there without small children... again, don't care! We got free chocolate at the end, so that was all that mattered.
After Chocolate World, we put on our "adult" pants and made our way over to Troegs Brewing Company. This brewery was AWESOME. In fact, it's getting its own post because of its complete awesomeness. We spent a couple hours there taste testing beers and wandering around the brewery on a self-guided tour. It was awesome.
Once we got our fill of beer for the afternoon, we headed over to downtown Harrisburg, where we were spending the night. We got to the hotel and were happy to discover that they upgraded our room to a King suite! Heeeyooo! And then we took a nap...
Once we got our second wind, we were ready to take on the night! We grabbed some beers & dinner at a local pub McGrath's, then made our way over to the Appalachian Brewing Company for WinterFest. For a $10 entrance fee, we got to see over 15 live bands on 2 stages while drinking awesome beer into the wee hours of the night. It was seriously so much fun. Our favorite band of the night was a blue grass band from Scranton, PA and I can't remember their name, but they were awesome! We had such a blast. The night ended with pizza. Obviously.
(I didn't realize how many photos I was going to have from this little weekend trip, so I split it up into 2 posts. Part 2 coming soon!)
