#BikeYourBucketList – Visit An Ice Cream Parlor

Urban Creamery St. PeteIs there anything better on a hot summer’s day than a towering cone of ice cream? Sure, most of it ends up dripping down your arm, but that’s part of the fun.

When it comes to ice-cream, there are two types of people: the ones who stick to the classics (soft serve vanilla in a simple twist cone) and the ones who like to adventure (load that unicorn cone up with sprinkles).

Fortunately, Tampa Bay’s ice cream parlors cater to both. Here are a few of our bikeable favorites to visit this summer.

Urban Creamery – 689 Central Ave, St. Pete

Homemade ice cream, dessert waffles, milkshakes and sundaes galore, URBAN Creamery is the dessert arm of the URBAN family in Downtown St. Petersburg. Everything is made on-site, from scratch and guaranteed delicious.

Dairy Inn – 1201 Dr M.L.K. Jr St N, St. Pete

A Burg classic, Dairy Inn on MLK has been in business since 1947. The menu is posted below the window, where loyal patrons place their orders, and has flavors, toppings and sprinkles for every fancy (plus over 150 milkshake flavors).
