July is Ice Cream Month

Ice Cream Month

James City County is home to a variety of locations that have frozen treats. For a complete listing of all restaurants, visit our dining guide.

Whether you want a cup of ice cream, a frozen yogurt or a frozen treat of another kind, find some options for desserts below:

If you’re a fan of gelato, you need to check out Cakealicious in New Town. They make their own gelato in a variety of flavors. We’ve tried it and it is amazing.

Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt

Many of the local ice creameries offer ice cream catering, which is great for your next office gathering, birthday celebration or party! Many places also offer fundraising.

Other Frozen Treats

If you’re an adult and looking for a frozen treat, Craft 31 is selling adult milkshakes with a boozy addition!

One of our favorite tips is that Duck Donuts offers a donut sundae made with one of their fresh, warm donuts topped with a scoop of ice cream.

There is no shortage of frozen confections at Busch Gardens and it comes in a variety of forms. There’s Josephine’s Creamery de Chocolat in the France section that sells delicious hand-dipped ice cream sundaes that are topped with hand-crafted chocolate fudge sauce and are served in homemade waffle bowls. (You can see them making them on site!) There’s classic soft serve available in the England and Germany areas of the park as well as Dippin’ Dots at various carts. They serve gelato in the Italy section of the park at Gelato di San Marco. New this year, they’re serving up famous Dole Whip in hollowed out pineapples or a cone at Roman Frieze in the Festa Italia section of the park. Last, but not least during Summer Nights this year, there will be a nitrogen ice cream stand. Did you know that nitrogen ice cream has an ultra-smooth texture? Another bonus tip is that you can get ice cream on your funnel cake at Big Ben’s Funnel Cakes and Three Rivers Snacks.
