As summer quickly approaches, we should be thinking about how to stay cool. Therefore I have assembled my favorite places to get soft ice cream. Number 5 is the Bethlehem Dairy Store or the “Cup” or Mowers. Named for the shape of the original stand and/or the dairy that first owned the stores, this Bethlehem favorite has expanded to 4 locations. Although all the stores serve their great homemade ice cream, the original is my favorite. You can chose from a large variety of flavors, served by an extremely friendly staff. If you want to be indulgent you can go for one of their many sundaes. One of the best times to visit is on one of our country’s three national holidays (Memorial Day, 4th of July or Labor Day) and try there banana split special.
