There’s already an article about Vegas on my blog.

This is a unique museum of vintage cars. It’s located in one of the many casinos in Las Vegas – the Linq.

Generally, Ethel M Chocolates is a chocolate factory and a cactus garden. It’s a very original place to visit, because it’s not at all clear how Americans combine their stroll through chocolate factories and places where cacti grows. But let’s see what is offered there.

The founder of the factory is Forrest Mars Sr., who named the factory after his mother. The factory itself opened its doors in 1981, and everyone’s favorite chocolate bars Snickers and Milky Way are produced there.
