You’ll be screamin’ over these ice cream spots!

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream. And that’s kind of the same thing.”  ~Author Unknown~

Whoever coined that phrase certainly knew how much ice cream brings joy to anyone who consumes it. And we all know that summer time must include a healthy scoop (or two or maybe more) of ice cream in order to satisfy that sweet tooth. And with many options to indulge yourself along Florida’s Space Coast, knowing where to go and why is essential to having a proper dessert experience.

Here are a few places to check out that will leave you screamin’ for more…
