June 21, 2013 - Smell the Flowers at Hershey Gardens

When life gets a little too stressed out for you, you may hear people saying to you “You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry. Don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” And unless you have a beautiful garden right at the comfort of your own home, you may need to find flowers somewhere else to smell. Ok, we are kidding. But, we are serious if you want to charter one of our Pennsylvania buses to visit the Hershey Gardens for a day of just being among flowers and smelling them.

Originally a three and half acre of rose garden, Hershey Gardens was opened to the public in 1937 and then it expanded into an astounding twenty three acre of botanical garden in 1942. Pennsylvania charter bus passengers will find it a pleasure to spend a few hours at this stunningly beautiful garden adorned with many different types of flowers. It is now laden with themed gardens, seasonal displays with an awesome Butterfly House filled with colorful and vibrant butterflies.

From March 28 until November 3, the Hershey Gardens is open daily and on selected days in November and December 2013, while the Butterfly House is only open from May 24 right through to September 15, 2013. Bring along your little ones in our charter bus and let them roam freely in the Children’s Garden which is made up of thirty two themed gardens that will allow your kids to learn about the awe of nature and plants as well as teach them to value the beauty of flowers and nature.

In order to keep the Hershey Gardens beautiful and clean at all times and for the future generations, we always gently remind our charter bus passengers to adhere to the restrictions set by the management of the Hershey Gardens. Outside food and beverages are not allowed and smoking (even cigars) is totally prohibited. Inside the Gardens, they have vending machines for drinks as well as drinking fountains. Oh, and one of the no-no at the Gardens is not to pick the flowers – the flowers are to be admired, not picked. While you tour around the Gardens, you will also notice that the Gardens are also home to small wildlife animals such as the birds, rabbits, squirrels and such, so do refrain from trying to disturb their nests or resting places. Having said that, we hope that you will have a great time walking and stopping from time to time to just smell the flowers at the Hershey Gardens!
