Made In America: Clydesdale Experience Tour at Grant’s Farm

Advanced research is always a good idea before a trip, and sometimes you find a tour or attraction that you would have missed otherwise.  That was the case with our trip to Grant’s Farm.  While the park itself was underwhelming, the Clydesdale Experience Tour was a highlight of our weekend.
