Travel Hosts' Favorite Ice Cream ShopsSummer days and nights call for ice cream! Whether it’s served in a cup or in a cone, with sprinkles or without, from a truck or a brick-and-mortar shop, ice cream always hits the spot. Check out some of our hosts’ picks for their favorite ice cream shops in the USA!
Izzy’s in Saint Paul, MN; Prince Puckler’s Gourmet Ice Cream in Eugene, OR; and Graeter’s in Ohio and Kentucky.
Van Dyk’sToy Hunters Jordan Hembrough’s favorite ice cream shop is Van Dyk’s Ice Cream in Ridgewood, NJ. “Since 1956, they have been serving homemade ice cream that is simply the best. My family loves it, and it has become a weekly stop during the summer.”
Thrifty’sLaurence and Sally Martin of Baggage Battles love the ice cream counter at Thrifty Drug Store, “we have one in El Segundo, CA, and it is a great place for – still – an inexpensive scoop of the creamy stuff.”
The Travel Channel host also has a spot in her heart for Brown’s Ice Cream in York, ME. "With views of the Atlantic and the famous lighthouse Nubble Light, this is a classic where you stand in line and order through a screen window to the pretty high school girl you know all the boys working there pine for."
