When this 23-acre botanical garden opened in 1937 it was much smaller (3.5 acres) and only contained roses. The roses are still here and are still spectacular. Be sure to seek out the famous M. S. Hershey Rose, a red Hybrid Tea variety, reintroduced in 2012 to celebrate the garden's 75th anniversary. Admission includes entrance to the Butterfly Atrium, an indoor tropical garden populated with hundreds of butterflies. Even if you've done butterfly attractions before, this one is worth visiting for the exotic vegetation. I’d never seen a Golden Shrimp Plant before!

Be sure not to miss the beauty Milton Hershey created. He is not just know for his chocolate!

The gardens are beautiful and definitely worth a quick visit, but probably aren't the type of place you can spend more than an hour or so.
