ice cream 5

This summer, Destination Eastern and Northumberland Shores Tourism Association (DEANS) summer students Hailey Conley and Kelyn Palmer were on a mission: find out all of the places in Pictou County where you can grab an ice cream.

There's no better treat on a hot summer day, and although we don't have the science to prove it, we believe that it just tastes better when you're by the sea!

Kelyn and Hailey put in a few kilometers and a few cones to share this amazing list with us to make your search for the perfect treat a little bit easier. We have links to Facebook pages or websites (where available), plus addresses.

Cool tip: Make sure you check out the hours and offerings before venturing out for a treat.
