Butterfly Atrium at Hershey Gardens

April 21, 2017

Our morning begins with a guided tour at the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum, where we will share the historical evolution of all types of vehicles. No other automobile museum in PA comes close to its uniqueness and historical value.

Lunch will be very special, a buffet at the historic Hershey Hotel.

Just opened, the 16,000-square-foot conservatory is the first permanent, year-round building at Hershey Gardens. Stepping into the climate-controlled Butterfly Atrium is like stepping into another world! Following a path that meanders around tropical plants and palms, complete with a soothing stream, feels like the Amazon jungle. And then there are the atrium’s residents: approximately 500 butterflies that flutter and zigzag representing 40 to 50 species that live on every continent except Europe and Antarctica. After exploring the conservatory, there will be just enough time to explore 23-acres of outdoor botanical gardens.

Last but not least, at Fort Indiantown Gap, we will tour the PA National Guard Military Museum.  The World War II Barracks, the Range House (an observation point for marksmanship trainers and military leaders) and the recently restored Chapel all help to capture everyday life in this branch of the military through the years.

Bus departs the Shillington Shopping Center parking lot BEHIND where the Driver’s License Photo Center is located at 7:30 am, and will return at approximately 6 pm. Transportation is provided by Elite Coach (price does not include bus driver’s tip).
