Steuben Ice Cream TrailSteuben County, NY – Sunday, July 18th marked National Ice Cream Day. Don’t worry if you didn’t get a chance to celebrate, you still have time to make the most of the exciting and delicious new Steuben Ice Cream Trail featuring the top 10 local favorite ice cream shops in Steuben County. 

Ice cream season is here! That time of year folks line up for scoops of handcrafted creamy goodness in a homemade waffle cone. Or soft serve with dip top and sprinkles. Want a candy bar mixed in? Two flavors twisted together? No problem. There’s so much variety, you could get a new flavor each day and still not get through them all before the end of summer. Thanks to over two-thousand local residents nominating and voting for their favorites, we have identified the “Steuben Ice Cream Trail” in Steuben County.
