Ben and Jerry's is just outside of Burlington, Vermont.
Did the tour, got the tee shirt, ate the ice cream, bought more ice cream for the road, used it to test the freezer of our new Dometic refrigerator...it passed.
They even have a little bit of RV parking (which is actually closer than the regular parking.)

I would recommend a trip to Napa Valley. They have lots of tasting tours. If you want to know about camping, PM me or call me.

Also, just a few miles away, there is a jellybean manufacturer. They have samples also....

also in the San Francisco Presidio is one of the best museums in the country that everyone should go to. The Walt Disney Museum.

You will be amazed at how many Disney movies you have forgotten.....

Not exactly a factory, but CNN in Atlanta also has interesting tours.

Last spring I ran across Bold Rock brewery in Nellysford, VA and took a tour of their factory (really small) They makes a great craft hard cider. They did have free samples, but I could not leave without a couple cases to go.
There are also a couple small wineries and craft beer breweries within a few miles, so it is a good place for a weekend outing and close to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

This is a website that should keep you in tours for a few trips ;-)

I updated my list with the additional information y'all have posted. However, I don't think it makes much sense to continue with the list since it has been rendered obsolete with the websites that have been provided. There is no way my list can ever compare to these resources.

Thanks Much Everybody

Don't forget guitar factories!! Especially if you play, but have never seen how they're made. It's a beautiful thing!
