More than 2,000 visitors per day flock to this chocolate production facility where truffles, cremes, cherry cordials, peanut brittle, and other sweet treats are made. If you're lucky, you'll get to watch the confectionery delights being created, and you can pick up a free sample or a hand-dipped ice cream cone. Self-guided tours are free, although it might be tough to pass up a purchase after watching the sweets being made. For the serious chocolate enthusiast, a chocolate tasting experience is offered for $15 per adult and $6 for children. The cactus garden is also free and is billed as the largest cactus garden in the Southwest, with over 300 species of plants displayed over three acres.
