Factory Tours in Southern Arizona
Spend a few hours touring the factories around Phoenix and see how that delicious cream filling gets into chocolates and candies, observe how Ping golf clubs are made, or stand in awe as hundreds of mechanical parts come together to form a helicopter. Indeed, you'll truly be amazed at the detail and precision that goes into making each product at the factories in the southern Arizona region.
Sweet-toothed tourists will no doubt enjoy a tour of the Cerreta Candy Company in Glendale, where you'll likely to emerge with a healthy craving for candy. And during the next round of golf with your buddies, teach them a thing or two about the clubs they're using, after you've gone on the Karsten Manufacturing Corporation factory tour in Phoenix.
South of Phoenix, be sure to take the fascinating RotorWay International factory tour, in Chandler. After witnessing the inner workings of sleek blades, rotors, and motors, you might want to take the opportunity to go on a demonstration flight.
Factory tours are typically family-friendly activities good for a short and interesting diversion from a region's mainstream tourist activities. Note that some tours have irregular hours and admission restrictions. Click on the individual icons for more practical information.
