Classic Scoops: The Best Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Parlors

Read next


The 1950’s were all about good, old-fashioned American fun. It was poodle skirts, lettered jackets and meeting up at the neighborhood ice cream parlors. Half a century later, these chill meet-up spots are thankfully still aplenty and open to make your sweet tooth’s whipped cream dreams come true. Get ready for a spoonful of nostalgia as your flip through the coolest spots for serving up retro root beer floats and vintage vanilla sundaes in America.

Elevated Ice Cream – Port Townsend, Wa

From farm to ice cream parlor! It always helps to know the ice cream your munchkins are scoffing down is made with the freshest ingredients. Elevated Ice Cream gets their milk and cream from a local family farm. The shop has old-fashioned style with a refreshingly modern twist and the ice cream is farm fresh and delicious!

Insider Scoop: Stop by the candy shop for some sweets to go. No one can say "no" to melt in your mouth truffles after a good scoop of ice cream.
