The Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau’s first trip to the DC Travel and Adventure Show this February was a huge success. We were thrilled to meet so many people from DC and surrounding areas at this consumer event, and we can’t wait to host new faces here in the Hershey Harrisburg Region!
HHRVB partnered with Hershey Entertainment and Resorts to bring award-winning pastry
chef Cher Harris to the Taste of Travel stage where she made her Chocolate Mint Verbana Cream Puff. Chef Harris is the executive pastry chef at The Hotel Hershey, and was crowned “Pastry Queen” by winning the prestigious Ladies’ World Pasty Championship in Rimini, Italy this January.
Popcorn Hat Players Children’s Theatre members were also featured on the Travel Beats stage, as they performed a version of “Little Red Riding Hood” to a captivated crowd.
HHRVB is proud to show off our region’s talented artists and successful businesses, and to give a “taste” of what visitors can expect when they choose to stay with us for a day, or two or three or more!
One of the things that we heard throughout the show was, “We didn’t realize how close to DC you are!” How close? Approximately 120 miles easily traveled by car, coach or train in about 2 ½ hours.
That’s just 120 miles between the DC market and an adventure-filled getaway or romantic retreat to The Hershey Harrisburg Region.
