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.

Morelli’s – Atlanta, Ga

Pretty much everyone from Atlanta (or who has driven through Atlanta) knows about Morelli’s. It has a well-earned reputation for being the best. The three shop chain changes up it’s flavors daily and serves everything from Chocolate Guinness to PB&J. With over 200 flavors to choose from you can try something new every time. Or just stick to Maple Bacon Brittle because … well it’s Maple Bacon Brittle.

Insider Scoop: You might catch a celebrity behind the bar. Conan O'Brien once scooped ice cream for customers after falling in love with Morelli's on one of his visits to Atlanta.
