One of our favorite places to visit here on the East Coast is Hershey, PA. There’s Hersheypark, Hershey’s Chocolate Factory, ZooAmerica, Hershey’s Chocolate Factory (did I saw that already lol), I mean if the chocolate alone isn’t worth the ride, I don’t know what is. But honestly, there’s SO much more to do in the Hershey/Harrisburg area not just all the chocolate fun. Our latest road trip to the area showed us why Fall is the perfect time of year to visit and there’s no better vehicle for the ride than the 2017 Toyota Highlander.
Fall offers so many fun things to do like pumpkin patches, cooler temperatures for exploring, and Hersheypark in the Dark. In fact, I wish we had brought some friends along for the ride. With all the space in the Toyota Highlander, we could have fit another family with us easily
The SUV checks in at just 192.5 inches long and has seating for up to 8 people. That’s only slightly bigger than a midsize sedan and one of the features I loved most about this SUV. As someone who still struggles driving her current (giant) SUV, this was definitely more my style. Plenty of space without being too big.
Comfortable seating and features kept us comfortable on our drive to the hotel and throughout our adventures. Since we were staying in Hershey, a trip to Hersheypark was a must, especially for the Halloween fun.
We also spent some time in Harrisburg taking in the sites and even a cruise down the Susquehanna River in a 30-year old paddlewheel riverboat.
Honestly, half the fun on this trip was actually driving around in the 2017 Toyota Highlander. I just loved this SUV and looked for any reason to go for a ride.
The third-row seats fit will fit 3 kids easily and maybe even an adult and 2 kids (I think 3 adults in the 3rd row might be a bit of a reach). Sliding second-row seats make it easy to access the third row to load the kids in quickly.With the car seat installed in the second row, it fit one more person comfortably and would have been a pretty tight squeeze to get two adults back there.
When not in use, the third row folds flat for more cargo space in the back. This was perfect for the pumpkin patch. We had plenty of room for our big pumpkins and the wagon to pull around the farm.
The Toyota Highlander is great for anyone wanting plenty of space and without a giant SUV. It offers large families and anyone looking for an SUV options they’ll quickly fall in love with. If this sounds like you, a trip to your local Toyota dealer is in order to test drive this baby for yourself.
