One of our all-time favorite spots to stop after a beach day, Hoffman’s is always a family favorite.
Located in Sea Girt, NJ, enjoy some ice cream on the beach!
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 is known for their delicious homemade, small batch ice cream. And with flavors like ‘Jersey Blueberry’ and ‘Booskerdoo Coffee Crunch,’ you’ll find something you love for everyone in the bunch!
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 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!
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! Note- ice cream only in their Holmdel location! SO GOOD!
