You Can Still Eat At The Delicious Virginia Restaurant That Invented The Ice Cream Cone In 1904
Summer is all about delicious ice cream, and here in Virginia, you can experience the history of the ice cream cone in a truly delicious way.

Better yet, you can see the world’s first ice cream cone machine and sample the product right there in the store. So whether you’re looking for an excuse to eat more ice cream (who isn’t?) or a unique insight into history, you’ll be utterly charmed by Doumar’s.
