I Scream, You Scream!
Tybee’s Best Ice Cream Shops
In case you didn’t know, July just so happens to be National Ice Cream Month. It makes sense. There’s nothing like a nice creamy cone or a cup of soft serve to cool you down during the scorching summer heat July is known for. Combine that with the humidity we’re so fortunate to experience down South, and you’ll see exactly why this cold sweet treat is deserving of its own appreciation month. Here on Tybee, we love our ice cream, and we’re proud to have quite a few parlors in town. While July is coming to a close, we still have several weeks left of summer, so there’s still plenty of reason to seek out this cold creamy delight. Next time you’re craving ice cream, head to one of these local shops.
