Now I want a rose garden. The variety of roses was amazing. I also enjoyed the variety of trees. The best part is the butterflies.

We went here on the second day of our trip to Hershey after having visited the Hershey Chocolate World on Day 1. We went as a couple of families with small children and the kids really enjoyed this trip even better than the Chocolate World....More

The garden is beautiful and such a peaceful place to be. I liked that you can get a combo ticket to save money when visiting The Hershey Story and the Gardens/Atrium. The Butterfly Atrium was awesome!
