Ice cream and summer will always be the perfect partnership forever and ever. (Actually, isn’t ice cream perfect for any season?) It just doesn’t get much better than enjoying your favorite flavor of the creamy concoction on a hot summer day. And, with the temperatures hitting record highs lately, it’s the best time to lick a scoop or two on National Ice Cream Day.
Plus, Denver is home to many sweet local ice cream shops, so be sure to get the latest scoop on any deals or giveaways for National Ice Cream Day by stopping by and asking about any specials for the day.
