Hershey Chocolate Factory in Smith Falls
The official web site is www.hersheys.com
Update Hershey is scheduled to close in December 2008
This Hershey Chocolate Factory is the place to be for all chocolate lovers not only to they offer a great selection of goodies at good prices they allow you to take a tour of the plant from the elevated walkway that allows you to see many of the products being made. They ask that you don't take any pictures while on the tour for security and other reasons but I managed to find a couple of photos of what you might expect to see while you visit. The tour is self guided and has many short videos to watch that explain the process as well as many display cases that contain historic items related to Hershey's. Smith fall's offers many other interesting things to do and places to visit these include the Rideau Canal Museum and the Train Museum

I thought I'd mention that one of the best tours you can make with the family starts with a stop in Carelton Place at 'The Cheddar Stop'
||They offer up some of the largest and most tasty Ice cream cones I've ever seen at prices that make you think they've made an error when they collect your money!They are located accross from the local Dairy Queen and are located on the left side just before the turn off to Smith Falls .
After the stop in Carelton Place it's off to Smith Falls then on your way home from Hershey's head over to Merrickville which offers many small unique shopps and it's another stop along the Rideau canal system. When you leave head over to Watson's Mills in Manotick before taking Prince of Wales back to Ottawa for the scenic drive along the water.
