These 12 Ice Cream Shops In Virginia Are An Absolute Must-Try

Who doesn’t love ice cream? Whether it was the little ice cream shop that we would walk to when visiting my grandparents in Southside Virginia, or it was eating my great-uncle’s old-fashioned homemade peach ice cream on the back porch, ice cream is one of the best memories of my childhood. These 12 ice cream shops bring back that nostalgia in full-force. They all feature homemade frozen treats, most made on-site and many using locally sourced ingredients. But whether they serve ice cream, frozen custard or gelato, one thing they all have in common for sure is that they make some of the most amazing frozen desserts you can find anywhere in the country. Lucky for us, they’re all right here in Virginia.

Everyone has their favorite place for ice cream and I’m sure we’ve left some off the list. Tell us where you like to go and maybe we can check them out for ourselves!
