Bet you didn’t know there is an Ice Cream Trail in New Hampshire!
One of our favorite foods in the summer (in fact, all year round) is ice cream. So we were happy to read recently that there is an official Ice Cream Trail touching all parts of New Hampshire. Each shop featured on the trail uses fresh New Hampshire dairy products in their recipes. Click here to see the Ice Cream Trail participants.
Many of our guests at the Inn On Golden Pond find strolling down the road, getting some homemade ice cream and lounging lakeside is the perfect ending to a great day in the lakes region. Who knows perhaps one day we’ll include ice cream on our breakfast menu at our Squam Lake bed and breakfast. A novel idea!
