The chocolate capital of America — Hershey, Pennsylvania — is rightly celebrated as a family destination, but you might consider leaving the kids at home, too: the golf offerings here are so strong that it makes a perfect buddies trip. But no matter whom you end up traveling with, be sure to bed down at the Hotel Hershey.
The winner of a Silver Medal in Golf Magazine’s Premier Resort rankings, the Hotel Hershey really does have a little something for everyone: fine dining, a great spa and, for the young at heart, chocolate factory tours and a nearby amusement park. Golfers can feast on three championship courses (Byron Nelson edged Sam Snead to win the 1940 PGA Championship on Hershey’s West course, while the East course has played host to numerous Nationwide Tour events over the years), along with the family-friendly, nine-hole Spring Creek layout. But whether you’re checking in to indulge a sweet tooth or to satisfy a golf fix, you’ve come to the right place.
Rooms start at $269 per night
