Most People Don’t Know That These Ice Cream Train Rides In Maine Happen All Summer Long

Maine is known for foods like lobster and blueberries, but we’ve always thought that Vacationland’s ice cream scene should be on the map as well! From soft serve to the scoopable variety, there are lots of local spots to cool down in the summertime. We recently came across this fun way to combine ice cream with history and couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. This just might be one of the most fun train rides in Maine!

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!
