Ice Cream Shoppe!

Ok, we understand that ice cream may not be one of your first thoughts when you’re planning your next beach vacation – but maybe it should be! After plenty of (delicious) research, we have chosen the top 5 ice cream spots each in a different beach city. Due to our extensive research, we’re also here to recommend their most popular menu items/ice cream flavors, so you’re welcome. Don’t worry – we’ve also found you the best rental that is walking distance to the water and the ice cream shoppe.


1. Bi-Rite Creamery, San Francisco, California

Favorite flavors from the Bi-Rite Menu:
Salted Caramel: This ice cream is sweet, creamy, bitter, and salty, perfectly hitting every note.
Ricanelas: This cinnamon ice cream with snickerdoodle cookies is a perfect pairing with all our ice cream flavors.

2. Purple Door Ice Cream, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Favorite flavors from the Purple Door Menu:
Purple Moon: This flavor has no artificial colors or flavors, is laced with hints of citrus and almond and is, or course, purple.
Espresso: This ain’t your regular coffee ice cream in either flavor or color. This full-bodied espresso flavor is compliments of our neighbors, Anodyne Coffee Roasters.

3. The Yard Milkshake Bar, Gulf Shores, Alabama

5. Mount Desert Island Ice Cream, Bar Harbor, Maine

Favorite flavors from The Mount Desert Island Ice Cream Menu:
Butterbeer: Made in honor of the release of the movie, “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince,” we made this Butter/Butterscotch/Root Beer blend for what we thought would be a one-shot commemorative flavor 10 years ago and kept it because of its popularity.
Lemon Poppy Berry Jam Swirl: A lemon based ice cream with hand-made Berry Jam Swirl and Poppy Seeds.
