Summer Ice Cream Cravings

Dripping Ice cream on a cone

August 5, 2016

If there is anything that goes better with summer than ice cream, we still haven’t learned what it is. Having a cold , sweet treat while enjoying an ocean view is pretty priceless and that is why we had to write this blog post  featuring the best places you can visit to get yourself a delicious ice cream near our hotel, Hawaiian Inn, in Daytona Beach. Here are our top picks:

Cow Lick’s: This homemade ice cream shop is guaranteed to have the best lick in town! Choose from Single to Triple Scoop, Hot Fudge Sundae, Strawberry Shortcake Sundae,  Brownie Sundae, Milkshakes, Ice Cream Floats and more. It’s a trip worth taking! You will thank us later. They’re located at 2624 South Atlantic Avenue, Daytona Beach, FL 32118.

Baskin Robbins: Located right across the street from the mall complex in front of the Daytona Beach Bandshell and side-by-side to a Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins is the ultimate choice for families that are divided between getting an ice cream, an iced coffee or Coffee Coolatta! You can even choose to grab a few pre-packaged quarts and take back to the hotel to eat pool-side with your family!

Cold Stone Creamery:  Located inside the mall, next to Bubba Gump Shrimp, this ice cream shop will mix your ice cream and toppings right in front of you on a cold stone. It’s pretty fascinating to watch plain vanilla become an oreo infused, marshmallow-filled, sprinkle-colored, vanilla ice cream! Just go ahead and name your creative combination after yourself. After all, it’s pretty hard deciding what toppings to pick when you have so many delicious choices.

Here’s a tip: Enjoy your ice cream relaxing in one of hammocks with a pool view and protected by the shade our palm trees so gracefully provide.
