When we stayed at our first Thousand Trails park, Russian River near Cloverdale, one of the papers that they gave us highlighted local attractions. I loved that they had already rounded them up for us!
Right away we noticed that the Jelly Belly factory tour was on the list!
Now, we hadn’t particularly been looking for the JB factory to tour, but since we had been enjoying their beans during long drives ever since we left home, a tour of the factory sounded like a timely field trip! Besides, it was free. When you usually have to pay for 12 admissions everywhere you go, you get pretty fond of free.
Because it was about an hour and a half from the park, we decided to make our stop on the way out – so last Saturday we stopped at the JB factory for an afternoon tour.
The factory has quite the tourist thing going – free tours to get you in the door, but just like the Tillamook Cheese Factory in Oregon, they suck you into the gift shop and it ends up being a rather expensive tour after all! LOL!
The factory has a diner, an ice cream bar, a fun gift shop, and even a bargain shop.
He is such a good baby, and is already getting too big too fast!
