Tabasco Pepper Sauce Factory Tour

On this Sunday Side Trip, we join our friends Howard and Betty for a tour of the world famous Tabasco Factory on Avery Island in South Louisiana. The Tabasco Pepper Sauce Factory Tour has been on our bucket list for a very long time. We've heard great things about it over the years, and it did NOT disappoint! We absolutely LOVED our experience at the Tabasco Factory Tour, Tabasco Museum, Tabasco Country Store and the Tabasco Restaurant: 1868!

In this video, we'll share some of the highlights of our visit to help you plan for your own trip to Tabasco and Avery Island. Make sure to plan enough time to see and do it all. There is a lot to see and do here!

If Howard and Betty look familiar to you, you may have seen them in some of our other videos including:
- Wingin' It with Friends | Set Up for Boondocking (meet Betty and Howard and hear about their RV)
- our Branson Missouri Video (we moochdocked at Howard and Betty's place before heading to Branson)

We took this side trip to the Avery Island Tabasco Factory during our time at the Cajun RV Rally in New Iberia, Louisiana. While the tour wasn't officially part of the rally, it was a recommended side trip and was located nearby.

Where is the Tabasco Factory Tour?

πŸ“ You'll find the Tabasco Factory on Highway 329, Avery Island, Louisiana (just outside of New Iberia and south of Lafayette LA)
