Factory Tours

Those TV shows where they show you how things are made are great and all, but they’re missing the best part: samples. Massachusetts has all kinds of factory tours that let you experience the making process hands-, eyes-, and sometime even mouth-on. Take the Taza Chocolate Factory Tour and and see what dreams, er, chocolate is made of. Sampling the product makes the tour more interesting at Boston’s two big brewers: the Sam Adams Brewery and Harpoon Brewery. If you like your factories cute and cuddly, the Island Alpaca Company on Martha’s Vineyard has got you covered (in alpaca fleece). And at Cape Cod Potato Chips, you’ll see how those weird things that grow in the ground turn into perfectly golden chips. Free samples, of course, included.
