It's summer! Durham is quiet, the outdoor pool is open, and its time for ice cream!
The Candy Bar
My personal favorite spot for ice cream: The Candy Bar! The Candy Bar and Creamery is a "chocolate, candy, and ice cream shop featuring handmade chocolates and caramels, a large selection of both classic and unique candies from around the world, local ice cream, and a huge selection of custom ice cream creations."
The Candy Bar is located in the center of downtown Durham at 44 Main Street. Find The Candy Bar on Facebook and on the web.
The Dairy Bar
A little further from downtown, The Dairy Bar is a Durham classic. The UNH Dairy Bar is "focused on healthy food and sustainability." The Dairy Bar's ice cream window stays open till 9 PM every day! You can find the Dairy Bar on Facebook, on the web, and at 3 Depot Road.
Baker's Corner is new to us, but it happens to be the closest place to my front door that I can find ice cream! Pretty hard to beat that, right? You can find Baker's Corner on Facebook and at 1 Madbury Road.
Bonus: Hop + Grind!
While not technically an ice cream shop, you can get a pretty sweet ice cream malt at Hop + Grind! Find Hop + Grind on Facebook, on the web, and at 17 Madbury Road.
