Do you love traveling and seeing the country at eye-level? Do you also love America's favorite cold treat - ice cream? If the answer to both of these question is an enthusiastic, "yes!" then we have exactly the July getaway for you.
An RV club called Harvest Hosts has compiled three places where you can celebrate National Ice Cream Day in a unique way - and you'll definitely want to make sure you check these out this summer.
Hansen's Farm Fresh Dairy
Located in Hudson, Iowa, Hansen's is a family-owned farm that has been around for over 150 years.
Of course you can get ice cream at Hansen's, but they offer more. With that home-grown farm-fresh love only a family farm can provide, customers are able to enjoy:
- cheese curds
- Wagyu-Holstein beef.
For National Ice Cream Day you can stay right on the dairy farm and wake up to the freshest ice cream you've ever tasted. For more information on Hansen's, visit the website.
Shumway Farms is located in Afton, Wyoming. Shumway is a 6th-generation dairy farm that invites visitors to press pause on the "busy life remote."
Customers can enjoy ice cream - of course, along with:
- raw milk products
- grass-fed finished meats
- Icelandic Skyr yogurt.
With soft rolling mountains in the distance and green fields to produce happy cows, Shumway is a perfect place to park the RV and enjoy a laid-back National Ice Cream Day with fresh product just steps away.

Supertam on 66
And last but not least is your chance to stay at an iconic ice cream parlor - and explore all the sweet treats contained within.
With a name that's a bit of a mouthful - Supertam On 66 Ice Cream Parlor And Superman Museum - and products that will certainly fill your mouth with joy, this parlor is a great place to get in touch with the malt shoppe feel of a slower and simpler time.
At Supertam on 66, guests can peruse a collection of Superman memorabilia alongside Route 66 signs and photos and some of Missouri’s favorite ice cream.
It's a small but charming parlor with all the atmosphere to make your National Ice Cream Day celebration something you'll never forget. For more information, visit the website.
