xplore 1 Ice Cream Shops on Cape Cod and the Islands

Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Cuttyhunk are all about summer and summer wouldn’t be summer without ice cream. From dessert chains to traditional ice cream parlors and shops serving up a variety of creative sweet treats, you’ll never get bored with the ice cream shops on Cape Cod and the Islands.

In addition to traditional ice cream parlors, many Cape Cod restaurants feature homemade or premium flavors, and you’ll find specialty ice creams at mini-golf courses, gift shops, candy stores, coffee shops, and even food trucks. You can have your ice cream near the beach, on a deck with a spectacular view, or in town at an historic Main Street location.

And there is a frozen delicacy for every taste – creative ice creams with clever names for the unique flavors, homemade ice cream crafted with milk from local grass fed cows, original frozen yogurts, sundaes, soft serve, Italian ice, gelato and sorbetto, gourmet vegan options, and Cape Cod and the Islands-inspired flavors including lobster. Yes, lobster ice cream is a thing, and a surprisingly good thing at that!
