If you visit Jefferson City you just have to make a stop off at Central Dairy for some ice cream. The ice cream is made right there so it's as fresh as you can get it. Take a group and order a banana split, they're HUGE, and you can get them made with any kind of ice cream and toppings you want. You can get freshpacked pints and quarts to take home, or take a look in their "damaged" goods freezer and pick up a few half gallons of ice cream with dented corners for a fraction of what you'd pay at the grocery store. Don't wait to visit until summer, go year round and enjoy.
