why we went: Our first educational tourist destination from nearby Nehalem Bay State Park. Who doesn’t love cheese?
when we went: A mid-October Monday.
what we found: A popular attraction, even on a Monday. It wasn’t empty, but not crazy crowded.
how long we were there: This could be a very quick stop, but we had lunch and ice cream, so we were here just over an hour.
what it cost: Free self tour, free cheese samples. Food and ice cream available.
what we thought: Kids loved it. Visitors walk upstairs to get a view of the cheese-making operation. There are signs telling the story of Tillamook Dairy and the area. Walk back downstairs to get in line for samples. The kids asked if we could stop for a second visit on our way south in the RV. There is plenty of RV parking. At least in mid-October.
