We’re back to take you on another great adventure! Recently we mapped out a delicious Ice Cream Trail that takes you through some of the most beautiful parts of the Adirondacks. Usually, when it comes to planning out an adventure for our readers, we focus on one region of our state to make things realistic. If we were to plan out an ultimate ice cream trail featuring the best ice cream in New York, it would likely end up taking days to complete. And while it would be nice to imagine spending an entire week traveling all around the Empire State dining on nothing but unforgettable desserts, not many of us actually have the time to do that.

With that said, another region of our state is up to bat! Today you’ll now find a mapped out excursion that will bring you to some of the tastiest locations around the Finger Lakes. With ten ice cream shops that are all unique and equipped with what it takes to win your heart (and stomach) over, this ice cream trail is what dreams are made of. Your next adventure starts here…

How many of these tasty destinations have you already had the pleasure of visiting? To take on another regional adventure that will have your mouth watering, lay your eyes on This Cheese Trail In New York That’s Everything You Ever Dreamed Of!
