Herr's Snack Factory Tour

Watch the Herr's machines transform corn and potatoes into your favorite snacks. If production is not running, all tour stops will be shown by video.

If you are very interested in the automation of assembly line tasks, you can learn a lot. The scale of the operation is amazing: 500,000 lbs. of potatoes per day, ten thousand bags per hour, etc. It is still fun if you just enjoy watching dough turned into pretzels or mountains of popped corn rolling by. The kids on the tour seemed to love it. You get to sample chips hot off the conveyor belt and also take home a couple of small bags. There is a gift shop to buy bags of rejects at a discount.

Neuchatel Swiss Chocolates

Since 1982 Neuchatel Chocolates has produced the finest Swiss chocolates with one goal in mind, to provide chocolate lovers everywhere in the United States the finest, freshest, best tasting, and innovative chocolate products this side of the Atlantic Ocean. This goal has never changed and continues to be Neuchatel's guiding light for all our future endeavors. In fact Neuchatel Chocolates constantly strives to raise the bar on the definition of chocolate excellence. Within the past few years' excellence has meant expanding our markets and providing superb chocolate in relatively new forms. Neuchatel Chocolates now offers both an organic line of chocolate and a sugar-free line that uses maltitol as a sugar substitute. Our sugar free line is safe for diabetics and has been a best seller. Both the organic and sugar free chocolate lines have allowed people who may not have been able to enjoy chocolate before, the opportunity to rediscover the incredible flavor of rich, decadent Swiss chocolate. Neuchatel's chocolate confections are created by our 5th generation Swiss Chocolatier, Albert A. Lauber - Oxford, Pennsylvania's very own Willy Wonka. Albert or "Al" as most of our factory store patrons affectionately call him has been hard at work at Neuchatel for all of its years. Albert's dedication to chocolate excellence has been prevalent since day one and continues to grow along with his experience.

When you arrive a charming Swiss guy greets you from behind a long counter filled with incredible candy! This place is incredible! Prices are great considering the quality. We got gifts for 5 people and it was very reasonable. Well worth a stop!

Paradocx Vineyard

Paradocx Vineyard, nestled among the rolling hills of southern Chester County, Pennsylvania, combines current technology and handcrafted secrets to create unique wines, made from homegrown grapes, and from those of only selected custom growers. Come enjoy a glass of wine or try one of our five wine tasting flights. Bottles, cans and pouches are available for purchase.

Reviewed By John P - Derry, New Hampshire

It takes a while to get here, but you are not disappointed when you do! An old/refurbished big barn is where most of the action takes place. The folks who work here seem to enjoy where they are and what they're doing. I guess working with WINE all day is not too bad!! I've been here a few times and have also visited in Kennett Square. I have been with Paradocx almost since the two Doctors started their little winery, and it has gotten better as it has grown. The wines offered here are really good, and pretty inexpensive. We get their "Paint-buckets", too. Fun, in a glass (for adults)!!

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park - Water Park

Reviewed By Christopher M - Stevensville, Maryland

Although this is a very clean and updated campground , everything is expensive. Visitors have to buy a parking pass, food at pool is expensive along with everything else. Maybe because it's a franchise. We probably will never return due to the fees.

The nightly rates for full hook ups and cabins are insane for a campground. Camping store is limited to any food supplies. Sites are tight and hilly. Young children can't ride bikes.

Kreutz Creek Vineyards

Reviewed By Tantalika - Coral Springs, Florida

We had a lovely time tasting at Kreutz Creek Vineyards. The owner and her tasting staff were warm, welcoming and knowledgeable about their different wines. We spent a leisurely time working our way through their tasting menu while chatting about the wines and how they're made. We bought a bottle of our favorite before realizing it was well past lunch. The owner pointed us in the direction of the sublime Twelves Grill for which we will be forever grateful.

This was our first visit here on Halloween. It's in a really nice area and feels very safe. There was all kinds of scenery--hills, fields, woods, flat ground, stream, old homes--this park has it all!! It was so pretty too with all the fall foliage.

I envy anyone who lives nearby. I would LOVE to run there!!

Dove Valley Winery

We stumbled on this winery and stopped in for a wine tasting. The grounds are beautiful and for a small fee, we got a cheese plate, a complimentary tasting glass and a large selection of wines to taste. The staff was incredibly friendly. The wine, however, missed the mark.
