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 was born and has now blossomed to over 23 acres. 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. The Milton & Catherine Hershey Conservatory features the indoor Butterfly Atrium, which houses more than 500 butterflies in a tropical environment.
