Watch it Made in the USA by Karen Axelrod

This book has become my travel bible! I am a sucker for factory tours (even if I do not use the product) and try to visit at least one on each trip. I am planning a fall trip to Pennsylvania and this book has helped me discover over eleven factories to visit along the way, including the KitchenAid factory in Ohio and numerous pretzel factories, like Utz's and Snyder's of Hanover in Pennsylvania.

What I like best about the book is that it is categorized by region so if you already know where you are planning to visit, you can check to see what could be on the way. It also offers information like hours of operation, costs, and freebies. I enjoyed just browsing through the book to see examples of places I could go. In the back there is also an index by product.

There is also a website at, but the book offers many more tours and other information.

Check out the book for your next vacation, even if you are planning a staycation for Spring Break - there are plenty of opportunities to watch it made right here in Wisconsin. I highly recommend the Jelly Belly Factory in Pleasant Prairie.
