Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month?
There's nothing better than treating the kids to an ice cream cone on a hot summer day in and around Rockville and Gaithersburg!
Luckily, We have a lot of great locally-owned ice cream shops in and around Rockville and Gaithersburg where we can indulge in yummy goodness. Here are 5 of our favorite places for ice cream:
18519 N. Frederick Ave., Gaithersburg, MD 20879
What we love: Bruster's offers at least 24 freshly made flavors daily, along with Italian Ice, sorbets and other goodies. There is something special for everyone! se this spot to talk about what makes this ice cream shop a standout. Try the special seasonal flavors when you go. The Black Cherry Chocolate Chunk has my heart this summer!
RIO Washingtonian Center
215 Boardwalk Pl,
Gaithersburg MD 20878
What we love: A relative newcomer to our local frozen treat scene, Fantastick's pops are decadent and fun. The ability to customize them is every kids dream, and quite a treat for adults, too! Pick a flavor of gelato pop, then, choose to coat, sprinkle toppings on it, and drizzle it with even more deliciousness, if you so desire. These pops are so yummy, and gorgeous too!
10219 Old Georgetown Road Bethesda, MD 20814
River Road Shop:
5241 River Road Bethesda, MD 20816
What we love: Sarah's Homemade Ice Cream elevates the art of ice cream. With a wide variety of small batch flavors, rotating regularly, I would say Sarah's is the perfect treat - call it self-care, or a special reward for just being you! Can't decide on a flavor? Treat yourself to the ice cream flight, with 6 kiddie scoop sized flavors so you can try them all!
1115 Nelson Street, Rockville, Maryland 20850
The Shoppes of Olney
3233 Spartan Rd, Olney, MD 20832
What we love: Known for its home made Italian water ice, frozen yogurt and custard, Carmen's keeps ice cream fun! In business for over 20 years, Carmen's offers a ton of delicious flavors and combos. My personal favorite is the classic gelati - your choice of soft custard layered in a cup with your choice of Italian ice - think orange creamsicle (vanilla custard and orange Italian ice) or root beer float (vanilla custard and root beer Italian ice) - your imagination is the only limitation to your tasty treat at Carmen's. Definitely a favorite destination for my kids!
