2019 Ice Cream


Editors’ Choice

DownRiver Ice Cream


Visit DownRiver Ice Cream to see barefoot kids, windswept grownups, and families lounging in Adirondack chairs in the little garden behind the shop, all with that relaxed air that only an ice cream cone on a warm summer day can deliver. The idyllic spot is nothing compared to the ice cream itself, though—rich, creamy, homemade, and available in lots of yummy flavors, including ones that nod to the North Shore, like minty Green Head and maple syrup–spiked Tree Sap.
