Step inside Hunter’s Dairy Freez, a family-owned and operated store in Danville, PA, and you’ll feel transported back to a mid-century ice cream store. The old-timey atmosphere matches the shop’s old-fashioned treats with 21st century flavors – cappuccino milkshakes, blueberry sundaes, or a Flavorburst cone of Cotton Candy. They also have a menu of diner food, and shaded benches outside under the trees where you can enjoy your meal. A playground for kids adds to the fun.

Bruster’s Real Ice Cream in Williamsport invites visitors to “Unplug, Indulge, and Relax”. That’s easy to do here, where all kinds of traditional desserts are transformed into yummy ice creams. Key Lime Pie, Southern Banana Pudding, and Red Velvet Cake Batter are three of the creative scoops you’ll find. Chocolate Mudslide, a sweet mix of dark chocolate ice cream with swirls of marshmallow, Oreo cookie bits and fudge brownie chunks is a favorite. Though Bruster’s is a chain, all the ice cream is made at the store.
