I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

What is it about ice cream that gets us so excited? Is it the magic of its cooling powers on the tongue? Is it the thrill of choosing between dozens of flavours? Is it the cone or cup that you pick? There’s something about ice cream that makes it everyone’s favourite summertime treat. Here on the Bruce, you can treat yourself to a cone, shake, float, sundae, fro-yo or bar in as many combinations of happiness as you can think of. After a swim, a dive, a day of hiking, biking, touring or boating, shopping or even eating! Nothing goes better with a day of adventure and exploration than ice cream.
