The original Ghirardelli chocolate factory in San Francisco, Calif., no longer offers factory tours. The original factory located in Ghirardelli Square has been repurposed as a chocolate shop and tourist destination. A small video monitor shows the chocolate-making process to visitors of the Square.
Ghirardelli Square hosts several eateries, shops and other tourist attractions. The Ghirardelli shop offers fresh chocolates with an adjacent ice cream fountain. The store is often flooded with chocolate lovers from all over the world, making lines a common occurrence. There are many other attractions close to the Ghirardelli store, including magnificent views of San Francisco.
