There isn’t anything greater than indulging in homemade ice cream on a blazing hot day. Luckily for us (not), Atlanta has these probably 80% of the year. We really don’t have seasons anymore, it’s either extremely hot or in the low 70’s. Thankfully there isn’t a shortage of outdoor spots to spend some time at on these days. There is the cutest ice cream “shop” near us called the Frosty Caboose. If you’re in Atlanta than you have probably heard of it because it’s been around for the past 8 years. It’s pretty easy to get to regardless if you live in the burbs or near the city. The concept of Frosty Caboose is novel, with 80’s music playing out of their speakers and the actual ice cream shop in a cute little red caboose. They have a wide variety of treats, including milk shakes, 36 flavors of ice cream at all times, gelato, italian ice, sorbet, and frozen yogurt. My absolute favorite is the Georgia Crossing: 2 scoops peach ice cream, whipped cream, crushed peanuts and a cherry. It’s located just steps away from the train tracks and the kids love sitting and watching the train cars slowly roll past. They can also climb up the red caboose and enjoy their ice cream while parents take 100 adorable photos of them, because what is cuter than little kids with messy ice cream faces? Don’t worry, there is a water spout at the back of the caboose where you can hose them off if need be (which happens every time with mine). Do you have any go-to places around your town that you love to explore? Let me know in the comments below! I am always daydreaming of our next vacation and love finding hidden gems. Happy Tuesday, friends!
