Short of creating physical clouds to hold people aloft, Mattress Warehouse stocks almost every imaginable furnishing to help customers catch a few Z’s. Rows of name-brand mattresses from Sealy, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic entice customers to replace their worn pad for new bedding, such as a standard mattress, a fluffy pillowtop unit, or a memory foam piece that conforms to bodies. Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.

In 1937, Milton Hershey, founder of the eponymous chocolate company, wanted to build a "nice garden of roses," so the 3.5-acre Hershey Gardens were born. Over time, it has grown into a 23-acre paradise filled with seasonal flowers such 5,000 rose bushes and 30,000 tulips. Themed gardens welcome visitors of every taste to wander among ornamental rocks and grasses or smell aromatic herbs. The Children's Garden features hideaways and whimsical characters to enliven imaginations, and the Butterfly House, which opens May 23, shelters hundreds of North American butterflies in a walkthrough exhibit every summer.
