Pt. Pleasant, Spring Lake, and Long Branch

One of our all-time favorite spots to stop after a beach day, Hoffman’s is always a family favorite.




Sundae Times

Spring Lake

A short walk from the beach, Sundae Times is an adorable spot to get some yummy summer time treats. We love their milkshakes too!







Coney Waffle

Asbury Park, Red Bank, Pier Village, and Belmar

A waffle, ice cream, and sweet shop, Coney Waffle is an experience like no other! Take the kids and treat them to some of their famous iconic milkshakes, ‘Sweet Galaxy Cones,’ and more! And come hungry, Coney Waffle doesn’t mess around!




Nicholas Creamery

Atlantic Highlands and Fair Haven

Nicholas Creamery is known for their delicious homemade, small batch ice cream. And with flavors like ‘Jersey Strawberry Shortcake’ and ‘Booskerdoo Coffee Crunch,’ you’ll find something you love for everyone in the bunch!







Lighthouse Strollo’s Homemade Italian Ice

Long Branch, Red Bank, West End, Pt. Pleasant Beach, Monmouth Park, Belford


Trips to Lighthouse Strollo’s were a tradition as kids, and it’s no different now! It’s not summer if you haven’t had an Italian ice from Lighthouse! Make this your family’s tradition too!



Polar Bear Ice Cream


Polar Bear Ice on Route 36 in Keansburg, NJ is the perfect spot to bring the kids for a treat after dinner! Try their soft serve flavors in cake batter, banana, and even vegan watermelon! Yum!






Jersey Freeze


Since 1952, Jersey Freeze has been drawing crowds for their delicious soft serve, shakes, sundaes, and more! And even better, they’re also home to some of the best burgers, cheesesteaks, and sandwiches around. Stay for dinner and save room for dessert. Definitely a family favorite!



Cookman Creamery
