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

On any given summer evening on Hilton Head Island, you are bound to find a row of sun-tanned, smiling little faces enjoying a frozen treat after a long day of fun in the sun. Whether it’s scooped in a bowl or piled high on a cone, ice cream is a summer time staple on Hilton Head Island.

This past weekend, we took our boys to Hilton Head Ice Cream for an after dinner treat. We got ours to go (Superman for our 3 year old, Raspberry Sorbet for mom and dad to split, and Praline for Poppa). We made our way over to Poppa’s house to enjoy our frozen treat on the porch.

Hilton Head Ice Cream has been an Island treasure (and treat) for almost 30 years, and has been touted by the likes of Southern Living and CNN! Many local restaurants feature Hilton Head Ice Cream on their menus.
