Go Get Ice Cream
$5 - $10
Ice cream science is a part of STEM that every kid loves...even at 10 in the morning. Ice cream at the beach is just different than ice cream anywhere else. For starters, the flavor options are off the charts! Thank you food science careers. The level of creativity in ice cream flavors in the area is unsurpassed with flavors like Netflix and Chill at The Ice Cream Store or root beer floats from Two dips. Simply divine. Be sure to ask them about what makes their ice cream special.
There are LOTS of ice cream places to try, but there are only a few that are unique to the beach. We highly recommend trying them all!

Two dips is in Lewes. We like to order our cones, visit the police museum while we wait for our order, and then walk to the beach to enjoy our delights.
King's Homemade is on the cutest street in all of Delaware!
Bonkey's is close to Rehoboth. They have a lot of flavors with really fun names.
The Ice Cream Store is at the boardwalk. Just when you think it doesn't get better than ice cream on the boardwalk, they introduce an ice cream wheel of fate. Spin the wheel and get the flavor it lands on.
Starkey's is ON the boardwalk. They have a lot of the same flavors as the Ice Cream Store, but without the long lines.
Vanderwendes is in Dewey. Once you taste this smooth ice cream...well...you'll know what awesome ice cream is!
Ideas, Notes, & Tips
The Ice Cream Store at the boardwalk in Rehoboth has a "spicy" flavor that, apparently, is so hot they make you sign a waiver before getting it!
