August’s warm weather makes this the perfect time to enjoy a walk around the city. And when that walk is done? It’s time for Ice cream, of course!
After a little exercise, give yourself a treat by stopping in at one of the metro-area’s best ice cream shops. Recently, we took a poll of RE/MAX staffers’ favorite places in the metro area. They chose everything from Sweet Cow (Platt Park, West Highland and Central Park) to The Constellation (Central Park); to Yeti’s Sweets and Arcade (Arvada)—and more, showing just how many great ice cream spots Denverites can choose from.
Trip101.com also recently ranked the city’s offerings. Here are the website’s top choices:
High Point Creamery
Just the names of these homemade ice cream flavors can make your mouth water. Enjoy basil with blackberry swirl, brown sugar cinnamon, coconut crème brulé, Tahitian vanilla, and…well, you get the idea: High Point will be the high point of the day. 215 S. Holly Street, Denver
Anyone who has been to Italy dreams of gelato long after their visit is over. Luckily, they can fuel their lingering yearning at Gelato Boy, which “makes its gelato from scratch every day and only uses the best ingredients available,” says Trip101.com. And there’s even dairy free offerings for those with special dietary needs. 4404 E 8th Place, Denver
Little Man Ice Cream
If you head to the Highlands, you can’t miss the giant milk can that has marked the home of Little Man Ice Cream since its opening in 2008. And the shop’s ice cream is just as memorable. “The great flavors of homemade ice creams and the aroma of freshly cooked waffle cones” lure customers to this spot, reports Trip.com, where people gather to enjoy community as much as the tasty ice cream offerings. 2620 16th St., Denver
Liks Ice Cream
“The is a perfect place to chill after biking around the city and hanging out in Cheesman Park,” notes Trip101.com. Liks was voted the best ice cream shop in 2018 by Denver A-List CityVoter and has been scooping out amazing flavors since 1976. 2039 East 13th Avenue, Denver
