Factory tours make for typical field trips for school children. If you are an educator in Ohio (homeschooling parents apply) looking for field trip ideas, this is a great list to bookmark or pin to your Pinterest board for future reference. Note: I did come across at least one tour that is not offered to children.
I verified to the best of my knowledge the correct links to the websites and, in some cases, to the tour-info pages.
Help me add to this list!
If you are aware of other Ohio companies offering factory tours leave me a comment below so I can add them to this list. Thank you!
