My Wife and I are taking the kids to the Great American Outdoor Show this weekend. We are driving to Dillsburg to stay at Camp Tuckahoe in one of the cabins there. Supposed to get pretty cold Friday night. We are stopping in Hershey on the way through and plan on visiting Hershey's Chocolate World. Any advice on good places to eat or other recreational opportunities would be appreciated. We may visit USS Olympia, maybe Liberty Park in Philadelphia on the way home.

The Outdoor show building is huge.
Get the broucher inside the doors that has a map with directions and vendor locations. It will be packed with people on the weekend, not any better during the week either.

Tour the York Harley Davidson motorcycle plant on the way to Philly.
Along US 30 East.

A couple more miles East on 30 is the shoe house. A big house shaped like a hunting boot. Will be on the right side of the highway, near the Wrightville exit. No tours though.

Check out the Amish farms and people in the town's of Bird in hand and Intercourse in Lancaster County. Don't hit the horse and buggies.

US 30 will get you close to Philly eventually.
