We spent the day at Hershey Park thanks to some free tickets given to us by a friend (thank you Carol!). My favorite ride is the carousel: a magical mix of stunning artistry, childhood wonder and that cool feeling you get being near something that still functions as beautifully as it did nearly 100 years ago. They don't make 'em like they used to is a line that certainly applies to the carousel. It's one of those rides that seems like it should just be for children but everyone from 1 to 100 gleefully chooses and mounts their colorful steed. The one at Hershey was made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in the early 1900's and has called this park it's home since 1944. What more can I say, it is the most romantic ride there is!
