5Great for any road trip around the US
By Amazon Customer
If you are going to take a road trip in the US or spend time in a state for any time on vacation or otherwise, this book is a must for your backpack. It has great businesses that you can stop by with no notice to check out a manufacturing process, in some cases participate in part of the process or sample some of the products after you've toured the facilities. All of the companies across America in this book give you a chance to see some of what happens behind the scenes of some of our best loved products.

5Great Road Trip Tool
By pnw snowbird
This book is a great way to enhance any road trip with interesting side-trips. It gives all the information you need (directions, cost, highlights, hours, phone numbers, time to allow, etc.) to visit dozens of interesting factories all over the USA. Many of these places are free, which is a good price for entertainment! Highly recommend this book; it's well worth the price.
