Did Someone Say Ice Cream?!


I’m sure everyone already knows this, and you have been counting down the days, but just in case I am here to tell you…. National Ice Cream Day is Sunday, July 15th. For a holiday so special, this week’s Friday 5 comes with a bonus because you can never have too much ice cream!

Here are 6 place to get a delicious frozen treat, this weekend and ALL summer long!





Tin Bin Alley

Did you know Cooperstown’s favorite candy store also serves DELICIOUS ice cream?! Gifford’s is world class ice cream, made in a small town in Maine and as they like to say “Ice cream is more than just a dessert. It’s a vacation from the everyday.” Stop by Tin Bin Alley on Sunday, July 15th where they will be serving $2 mini scoops all day!


Barnyard Swing

In honor of National Ice Cream day on Sunday, July 15th, visit Barnyard Swing, where the golf is cool but the FREE soft-serve ice cream with each round of golf is way cooler! No time for golf? Stop in and grab a $2.00 Ice Cream to celebrate the day!!


Stewarts Shops

Ask any State New Yorker who makes the best ice cream, and the general consensus is always Stewart’s Shops. This employee and family-owned chain might appear to be your average convenience store from the outside, but take one bite of any of their specialty ice creams and you will be hooked! Stop in this week for $1.99 make your own ice cream sundaes and hot fudge sundaes!


Stagecoach Coffee

Stagecoach is best known for their delicious freshly roasted coffee, but have you tried their ice cream?! Or better yet, their new Stagecoach Shake?!
