During the summer, there are many ways people try to cool off. First of all, there’s staying inside with the air conditioning. While this may be the most effective way of keeping you cool, no one wants to stay inside all summer – we want to enjoy the outdoors and all it has to offer. For those who live near a beach or who have a pool, you can easily cool off with a dip in the water. For the foodies among us, however, you might take a more conventional approach. We’re talking about ice cream, smoothies, and more. These delicious frozen treats allow us to remain outdoors, cool us off, and provide a tasty treat for our tastebuds. Below, we’ve taken a closer look at some of the ice cream shops in the Houston area!
