The summer continues, and with temperatures a bit on the warm side, when we’re not thinking about a dip in the ocean or the pool, we’re thinking about ice cream!


Yes, that cool, creamy, delectable treat that is enjoyed by those who are 5 or 95. Fortunately, the Myrtle Beach area has a wealth of options when that sweet tooth starts tingling.


For those wanting to escape to the creameries of old, step back in time with a visit to Kirk’s Ice Cream Parlor and admire its old-fashioned atmosphere. The classics are all there - cookies and cream, pralines and cream and delicious and simple chocolate.


Up in North Myrtle Beach, you’ll The Original Painters Homemade Ice Cream. This wonderful parlor even has a flavor named after the city’s most famous resident, Vanna White.


So, when you stop in, make sure and order a scoop of Vanna Banana!

And it doesn’t stop there. Many other fine locations along the Grand Strand are peddling that cool and creamy treat.


The only real question you need to ask yourself is do you take your ice cream in a cup or a cone!
