July is National Ice Cream Month! Come celebrate with us.
What’s a summer vacation in Currituck without something cold and sweet? We all scream for ice cream and other frozen treats because nothing beats a cone or cup of your favorite flavor or two after a day at the beach. Whether you’re looking for a midday snack or a cool dessert to cap off a delicious seafood dinner, you don’t have to search far for ice cream. We are proud to host many locally owned shops, with their scoopers at the ready to serve you.
