Create an itinerary including Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola
Visit the site where Caleb Bradham first invented one of America's favorite sweet carbonated drinks at Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola. Though it was a pharmacy when Bradham first experimented with the soda in the 1890s, the site today houses a gift shop and soda bar. Here you can learn more about the history of Pepsi's inventor and the drink's early days. You'll also have the opportunity to browse through Pepsi memorabilia. Of course, no visit would be complete without ordering a Pepsi float from the bar amid the historic surroundings.

  • Very Beautiful, Nice place. Lots of items/souvenirs for sale. Has alot of History inside like Pepsi and Mountain Dew from different countries, model truck's and planes. I recommend going here.
  • Pop pop fizz fizz oh what a relief this place did not deliver. I suggest you go to a nice river and go fishing versus this place. Not much to see in this great tourist attraction. Let's be real, it not with the visit, it's a glorified gift shop. Go at your own risk of disappointment. ☺️🤭🤭🤭🤔🤔🤔
