Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Made in America Tours Event?

Made In America Factory Tours offer exclusive, behind-the-scenes looks at the making of some of America's favorite products. Step onto manufacturing floors and into artisan shops for a first-hand look at American craftsmanship.

Would my children enjoy this?

Many of our tours are appropriate for children. Please refer to the official brochure for additional details.

Do I need to make reservations?

Reservations are not always required. However, some tours do ask that you call ahead to reserve space. Please carefully review the listings for the locations you wish to visit. Those that require reservations will be noted. Those with no reference to reservations generally take visitors on a first-come, first-served basis.

Is there an admission charge?

There is no overall admission charge for York County's Made In America Tours, but a few of the sites do charge nominal fees to help offset operating costs. Look for the admission icon ($) next to tours and attractions with admission fees. Unless otherwise noted, the tour or attraction is free.

What should I wear?

Layers and comfortable shoes are recommended, but avoid sandals, flip-flops and high heels because safety regulations at many factories forbid them. Some tours require closed-toe shoes. If a tour requires items such as goggles or hairnets, they will be provided.
