Summer has finally arrived. And summer = ice cream!
There are many places to go for ice cream in the local area. There are Friendy's restaurants, Carvel Ice Cream, Dr. Mike's in Bethel & Monroe, Haagen-Dazs and Rich Farm Ice Cream in Oxford (which many people say is the best ice cream in the area).
In Newtown, there are 3 places you can go to for ice cream:
- Cold Stone Creamery: Located at 255 South Main Street (Route 25), this is the "IT" ice cream chain. Select your ingredients and watch it being mixed together on the cold stone.
- Ferris Acres Creamery: Located at 144 Sugar Street (Route 302), this is located on the Ferris family's farm. Sit outside at a table or bench & watch the cows while you eat your ice cream. Ice cream is made on site and specials are available daily.
- Ice Cream Shop: Located at 51 Church Hill Road, this is the oldest ice cream shop to town. It's located next door to the Teen Center (the Garage) and is close to town. It has a large gravel parking lot & tables to sit out at. Service is always good and the ice cream is made on the premises.
Arrive early - lines can get long. Try a different flavor everytime you eat ice cream at one of these places. Say hello to everyone from town that you see.
