Entry was free but by the time I was out the door it cost me.
I guess it cost me double.. I had talked about the Cheese Factory before I even left home and at different places Noni read about the cheese tasting and got excited about making a stop. I knew that a Geo cache was on location also so I was ready. As we stopped along the way at different pull outs to take pictures and look for Geo caches time ran out and the Tillamook Cheese Factory closed as we drove into town. I knew I had to stop and spend the night nearby. This cost me for the hotel - but would had stopped sooner or later anyways.

Noni got to taste
This was not the only Cheese place we stopped at - there is one more down the block.
I must add we tasted many types of cheese - had a sample of the fudge - was able to restrain myself and not buy any - but I can not say that to the cheese. I walked out the door with over 60 dollars in cheese. I really liked the Old sharp Cheddar Cheese.
I almost made it out the door without buying ice cream - but Noni had stopped - she wanted some and so we bought two ice cream cones. Very good.
