For Families

How about taking the family off the beaten path to a working dairy? Milking a cow will certainly provide some good fodder for that “What I did on my summer vacation” essay. Or for something a little less hands-on, tour a world-famous sticker factory. Top it off with a visit to an old-fashioned ice cream parlor or candy store like you’ve never seen before.
