Named for the native Texas wildflower, Blue Bell Creameries dishes up some of the best-tasting ice cream in the country. Ranked in the top three best-selling ice creams in the U.S., Blue Bell has worked its way to the top since 1930. Your family can cool off on their next trip to Texas at this factory, located a little more than an hour from Austin and Houston. Enjoy a 45-minute tour which concludes with ice cream, of course. Choose from 32 flavors and then take some home for the rest of the family to try because this sweet stuff is only sold in select states. Tours of the factory are $6 for adults, $4 for kids between 6 and 14, and free for children under 6.
