Ice Cream Shops & Stands - SouthCoast MA and RI

Perhaps you have a bucket list of things to do this summer or maybe you will just enjoy traditional summer memories like long days at the beach, cookouts with friends, nights at the drive in and bonfires on the beach. Either way, summer wouldn't be complete without a trip (or regular visit) to your favorite SouthCoast food and ice cream shack.

Most shacks serve up more than just scoops of ice cream. Menu offerings often include typical New England favorites like chowder (the locals pronounce it chow-dah) and clam cakes, fried clams, fish & chips, stuffed quahogs, lobster rolls, fries, onion rings and traditional grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. Save room for the highlight of the trip - a cool treat. Try soft serve or hard ice cream- cup or cone, sprinkles or jimmies. Maybe you're in the mood for a sherbet freeze, root beer float, frappe, sundae, one scoop or more. Whatever your pleasure, try it at one of the following popular SouthCoast food and ice cream shacks.
