We know it’s Hot: Take a Break and Cool off!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! It is H-O-T out there and we want you to keep cool. What better way to please your palate and cool down than the iconic summer treat. Here’s our list of top picks for ice cream in the Ocean State. Cool down at these hot spots in Little Rhody this summer.

On the way home from the beach? Brickley’s Ice Cream with locations in both Narragansett and Wakefield is a must-stop shop. Open from noon to 10pm, you can get a cool treat almost any time of the day.

If you’ve just hopped out of your kayak in the quaint summer destination of Wickford, you’re just a short ride from our next sensational scoop. Head on over to The Inside Scoop in North Kingstown. Their impressive menu offers options galore and is open seven days a week!

Located in Tiverton’s historic Four Corners section of town, Gray’s Ice Cream is the go-to place for homemade ice cream 365 days a year! Featured several times in Rhode Island Monthly Magazine, this local gem is the place to hit if your sweet tooth starts calling you while you’re in the area.

One of the newest hits on our list is right on Main Street in East Greenwich: Clementine’s Homemade Ice Cream. With plenty of dairy and non-dairy options available, this new stop to cool down in this summer has been hopping all season long!

With three locations in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Sundae’s Ice Cream Shop is a family-owned ice cream shop that means business. Priding themselves on “never having to refuse any customers because of allergens or diet restrictions,” their shops have been around for over 30 years and still going strong.

When you hit Aquidneck Island this summer, head on over to Frosty Freez in Middletown for a cool, refreshing treat. The location, serving ice cream to locals since the 1950s, boasts the old-school charm of its original design.

If you’re an ice cream-lover, you’ve heard of Ben & Jerry’s. With far-out flavors like Phish Food and Cherry Garcia, Ben & Jerry’s has been making waves since 1978.  Whether you’re on the East Side of Providence getting in some shopping, or strolling the streets of the wharfs in Newport, you can grab a cone or pint of this famous, ferociously-flavorful iconic brand.

Don’t forget, that as summer winds down and September creeps in, there is still time to try a plethora of ice cream shops in our area! Head on over to RI Food Fights and get your tickets for The Inaugural Search For The #BestScoopRI happening in September!
