Featured Locations

Avery’s Beverages

Avery’s still makes the same flavor of sodas, the same way it did 100 years ago, in the same place. A more recent, popular part of the Avery’s experience is its Make Your Own Soda program. Guests get a behind-the-scenes tour of the soda factory and can make their own flavor in the Mixing Room. View map and address

Indulge in German-American cuisine to the tunes of live accordion music, or sip beer from das boot in the Bier Garden. View map and address

This 1,100-acre farm includes pick-your-own fruit, a huge corn maze, horse-drawn wagon and pony rides and a new Golf Center and Apple Nine Course. Purchase fresh produce, sandwiches and baked goods in the Apple Barrel market. View map and address
