During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
With all the big national chain pharmacies now, it's rare to find a locally-owned pharmacy with an old-fashioned soda fountain. Hillsboro Pharmacy and Fountain got its start in 1873, and while it's certainly modernized over the years, the soda fountain is still there.
Visit Hillsboro Pharmacy and Fountain at 243 E. Main St., Hillsboro, OR 97123.
Just like back in the old days, you can climb up on a swivel seat at the fountain and order a malt or milk shake. This place is like stepping right back in time.
They'll make it for you in one of their decades-old shake mixers.
Every shake is made the old-fashioned way, with Umpqua ice cream, one at a time in a big, metal cup.
Then they'll pour it into a pretty glass, top it with another scoop of ice cream, and serve it with a straw and a long-handled spoon so that you can get to the very bottom of the glass. You definitely don't want to waste a single spoonful of this shake!
The soda fountain has more than a dozen flavors to choose from, so you're certain to find something to your liking. The shakes are thick, creamy, and delicious.
Visit Hillsboro Pharmacy and Fountain six days a week. It's open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
