Mint-chip, lemon-mango and a great big banana split. What’s more American than ice cream on a summer day? (This summer has already been hot… thank goodness ice cream shops are open for business!)
Part of the fun of summer is slurping and crunching your way to the bottom of a waffle cone. It’s even more fun when your friends, neighbors or the grandkids come along, so gather them up and check out this list of ice cream parlors around the region.
What you’ll get at these shops are unique environments plus energetic flavor experiences. We bet you won’t be able to stop at just one scoop.
