As if its proximity to Hersheypark wasn’t reason enough, Hershey Lodge offers up one of the most kid-friendly hotel experiences in state.

Join Hershey’s characters for great activities like s’mores roasts, chocolate bingo, and even incredible animal experiences presented by ZooAmerica.

4. Great Wolf Lodge, Scotrun, PA

With suites that sleep up to eight, and a huge indoor water park, Great Wolf Lodge would be a fabulous family getaway even without the additional kid-centric amenities.

If you, or your kids, are obsessed with all things “train,” all aboard the Red Caboose Motel! Stay in real train cars, many of which are spacious enough for the whole family. Stay Lancaster the fun way with this unique hotel, which even features its very own dining car restaurant. Take a tour of the grounds on a trackless train, enjoy a summer movie on an 18-foot screen in the barn, stop in at the arcade, or even take advantage of an adorable on-site petting zoo!
