Hard to top ice cream in a state and a town known for it. Great location among shops and close to cruise boat pier. The line is long sometimes but moves swiftly.

Even late at night this place was busy. Quite a lot of flavors to chose from. They also give a very generous scoop of ice cream. You won't go away hungry!
