Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory Tours is a fun activity that open Monday threw Friday 9am- 5pm. After you park in the designated spot you have to walk a little around the building to get into the tour entrance. This tour is a self guided one. You can make this tour a quick one, or really take your time since it is self guided.
They do not allow strollers into the building. They also do not allow you to take photographs once you are inside the building, so make sure to take one with the cool sign at the entrance. The tour is a hall way with windows into the factory to your right and cool facts along the wall to your left. You can enjoy watching the potatoes fall into the fryer , fall up and down the conveyor belt, get sorted and bagged. At the end of the tour you end up in a small shop. You can buy a variety of their chips and merchandise. They allow you to take two small bags of chips with you when you leave. I think this is a great little tour for learning where chips come from, from potato, to chip, and shows how many machines and people it takes to make that process happen.

Armstrong-Kelley Park is located in beautiful Osterville. It was very easy to find for those who are directionally confused as I am. As you pull up you will see a large open space with picnic tables, a great area for you to sit and enjoy a bagged lunch. The landscape is amazing, featuring many different types of plants and flowers to view. You can choose from a wide variety of walking or hiking trails. My daughters favorite walk included ending up at Liam’s View which has a large wooden train to play in. The John Folk Water Garden was a favorite of mine, watching the fish swim around in the beautiful small pond is quite relaxing. If your looking to relax and have a read then check out the Garden Of Verses with its many poems. Buddy’s Place was a favorite of my mothers, it’s a quite memorial garden which was still being worked on when we made your visit. One of the great things about this park is that you can not only bring your human family, but you can include you fur babies as well. There is something for everyone at this park whether your young or young at heart.
