The Ice Cream Parlor In Delaware That’s So Worth Waiting In Line For

When it comes to ice cream, Delaware is one of America’s hidden gems. We’ve got more dairy farms, creameries, and ice cream shops per capita than anywhere else… I think! Okay, so other than that made up (but totally believable) bit of fake news, read on for the realest news you’ll see today – the lines outside of Dairy Palace may wrap around the building, but they’re so worth standing in to get some of the best ice cream in Delaware.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Dairy Palace is located at 2 Jay Dr., New Castle, DE 19720. It’s right across the street from the airport on 202, and you can’t miss the bright sign and giant ice cream cone! They’re open from 11 a.m to 10 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday, and they stay open until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Dairy Palace has been a cash-only establishment for generations, so be sure to visit an ATM if necessary before getting in line.
