Vevey, Switzerland, the Birthplace of Milk Chocolate

In 1875, Daniel Peter invented milk chocolate here in this tiny Lake Geneva hamlet. Today, there's a museum dedicated to the history of food—the Alimentarium, and a giant fork sticking conspicuously out of the lake commemorating its presence. Be sure to meander down the waterfront boardwalk to visit the Alimentarium, the giant fork, the statue of Charlie Chaplin, and the colorful carousel. And don't forget to eat Swiss chocolate every day!
