Loved this place. $8 admission is beyond worth it. Amazing train/miniature villages created by one man, built in 1958. Family still runs it.

Roadside America Miniature Village

Roadside America is an unforgettable panorama of life in the rural United States. The exhibit spans more than two hundred years in time and lets you see, in exquisite miniature, how people lived and worked in pioneer days, through the years since then, right up to the present.

Roadside America Miniature Village

This unique place was a part of our 7th grade field trip way back in 1972, along with a stop at Hershey Amusement park. After many years of yearning to go back, it finally happened in September 2007. It seems to have remained virtually unchanged after all these years. My wife and I were able to have a special closing ceremony -- the night show -- just for us, as we were the only people there first thing in the morning when it opened.

Great pit stop if on you're on the way to Hershey with kids asking "Are we there yet?!" My 10 and 6 yr. old loved it! I came here as kid in the '70s and always wanted to come back, which made this trip with my kids much more special. Give yourself a good 1/2 hr. to catch the "Night Scene." A picture by the big Amish Couple in the parking lot is obligatory!
