Next day was a day resting from all the touring

We have a very nice pool on the premises


We departed the Thousand Trails Hershey park right on time, about 9:15 a.m. to arrive at our next destination along about 2:00 p.m. The 170 mile drive went smooth

Prices are: Seniors $25, Kids 6-12 $15 When we were done with out guided tour of the caverns we ate lunch at the café next door, then we went to the Auto Collection and after that the Toy collection.
