Stay Cool and Sweet this Summer!

By Kate Bray, Publisher, Macaroni Kid South Shore Boston June 14, 2021

Is there anything better than treating the kids to an ice cream cone on a hot summer day on the South Shore? We can't think of one!

Luckily, we have a lot of great locally-owned ice cream shops on the South Shore where we can indulge in yummy goodness. Here are some of our favorite places for ice cream on the South Shore!

Do you know of an ice cream or frozen yogurt shop that is open that we missed? Or have a picture to share (we can only take so much sugar as we tour so the help is appreciated!) Please e-mail so we can add them!
