Summer isn’t officially here until it’s warm enough to enjoy ice cream outside

A Summertime Essential (or year round, really)

When you think of summer, what comes to mind? Maybe it’s the clean smell of sunscreen at the beach and playing volleyball on the hot sand. Maybe you love sipping frosty iced teas poolside, hiking through streams of sunlight in the woods, listening to the popping of logs while toasting gooey marshmallows, and the sweet song of peepers encapsulated by a blanket of countless stars. Let’s not forget the weightless feeling in your stomach as you soar on your favorite roller coaster, the gentle swaying of a hammock while you leaf through the musky pages of a well-loved book, the quiet pulsing of a firefly in a mason jar, and the colorful explosion of fireworks across a smoky, black sky. There are so many reasons to get excited about warm weather in Buffalo Niagara!

While we still have months to go before beaches open and fireflies come out to play, there’s still one summertime staple that we don’t have to wait around for- eating ice cream! There’s an amazing number of ice cream shops in Buffalo Niagara that are already serving delicious, creamy combinations, from over-the-top sundaes to classic soft-serve cones. At Sweet Jenny’s in Williamsville, located beside Glen Falls in a historic mill, you will find house-made batches of hard ice cream sold beside novelty chocolates and vintage comic books. If you’re craving something creative, visit Lake Effect Ice Cream in Lockport and order a House Chocolate Volcano- chocolate ice cream hollowed out and filled with hot fudge, topped with a crunchy biscotti and airy whipped cream. Satisfy springtime nostalgia in East Aurora with a creamy vanilla-and-chocolate twist from Kone King followed by a quiet stroll through Knox Farm State Park.

No matter what town you find yourself in, you are never too far from an opportunity to cap off the night with something sweet! For more sweet dreams, check out this epic list of ice cream shops in Buffalo Niagara!
