Things to do in Fairfield on a Winter day

1. Visit Jelly Belly

Go on a tour at the Jelly Belly Factory! Whether you are a new visitor or a returning friend, Jelly Belly offers a number of indoor activities.

The Jelly Belly Candy Company is the home of Jelly Belly jelly beans and more than 50 other fine confections. The self-guided tour is open daily, 9:15 a.m. to 4 p.m., (with the visitor center open until 5 p.m.) and is a great place to spend a couple of hours with your family. As you walk above the factory, take a deep breath and smell the aroma of peach, cinnamon, pineapple, or whatever flavor is being made that day. The quarter-mile walkway is filled with displays, interactive exhibits, and entertaining videos. Learn the secrets to how Jelly Belly creates the legendary Jelly Belly jelly bean, and discover why it can take up to two weeks to make a single bean. After your tour, visit the Jelly Belly Cafe, where you can enjoy a pizza or cheeseburger shaped like a jelly bean!
