Overview

Teddy Bear Town is a little gingerbread house that displays the Guinness World Record of over 8000 teddy bears. Bears in the collection have come from every U.S. state and 24 foreign countries and no two are alike. There is no charge to see the collection, runs on a donation basis plus sales from the gift shop. It is opened daily from Memorial Week-end thru mid-Sept., 8a.m. til 7p.m. Off-season tours are given upon request.
