Ethel M Chocolates Factory and Cactus Garden
Ethel M Chocolates Factory and Cactus Garden Review
The M stands for Mars, the name of the family (headed by Ethel in the early days) that brings you Snickers, Milky Way, Three Musketeers, and M&M's. Come here for two special reasons: one, to watch the candy making, and two (more important), to taste free samples in the adjoining shop. As for the other half of this place's name, yes, there is, indeed, a cactus garden—Nevada's largest—with more than 350 species of succulents and desert plants. It's at its peak during spring flowering.
