Washington DC/Gettysburg/Philadelphia with kids

Jump to last reply

Our So Cal family plans to head east in late August. My wife and kids, 12 and 9 have never been "back east." We vacation quite a bit, usually in Hawaii, Mexico or Vancouver. I am trying to figure out how to divide 10 days in the 3 locales. My daughter and I also want to make time to visit the Hershey chocolate factory and amusement park. I thought we would do 3 days in DC, 3 days in Philly, 2 days in Gettysburg and 2 days in Hershey. Does that sound right or should we adjust?

Second, we are trying to figure out where to book accommodations particularly in Gettysburg/Hershey? In DC we plan to stay at the Park Hyatt Washington and in Philadelphia we plan to stay at The Rittenhouse Hotel. I am trying to figure out where to stay in Gettysburg/Hershey area. Also, we would appreciate any comments on the Park Hyatt or The Rittenhouse.

We plan to rent a car when we leave DC to head to Gettysburg. Are there any public transportation options that are workable to get to Gettysburg/Hershey? and then up to Philadelphia?

Finally, our neighbor says we should to DC and Williamsburg instead. Any thoughts. Thanks in advance for any suggestions
