Strollers are not allowed indoors so carry the little ones! And don't plan on spending too much time is is a VERY short walk through the... More

It is just a quick walk down a wall of windows to see inside the factory with signs along the way. They do offer a tiny bag of chips at the end inside the gift shop. If you are a fan of the product, or you are really looking for something to do, then go ahead, but don't expect anything... More

When we booked our spring break vacation in Cape Cod, we weren't expecting the area to have had one of their worst winters ever! So, as I researched fun, indoor activities to do, I discovered the Cape Cod Potato Chip factory tour. To be honest, we normally don't buy these chips, but purchased one bag prior to the vacation just... More

This is a self tour, you guide yourself through the readings in the hall, while looking through the windows into the factory where the crisps are being manufactured, it smells fab, you really want o buy some by the time you get to the shop at the end. You don't need longer than an hour and if you're in the... More

At the end you come to the shop where you ar allowed one small bag of chips free. You may buy larger bags but they are... More

The factory tour lets you see how Cape Cod makes their chips. You watch the process as you walk down a hall with windows. The tour ends in the gift shop where you get a sample bag of chips. The tour is not very long. If you are in the area it's a nice stop.

Watching them make the chips and reading all about the process was fun and the store has a great variety of chips to buy.

Self-guided tour is short, but informative about the process. A great place to stop by on the way to the beach or if you're in the area. Free samples on the way out are definitely a plus, and this is the best place to stock up on their chips if you have trouble finding them at home (like me!).

This is such a nice little diversion for the Cape visitor, especially on a rainy day. Self-guided tour can take as long or short as you want. The younger kids should like the way the machines work (the conveyors, the fryers and the assembly line). Finally, you can't beat the samples on the way out!
