But the town is also famous for another landmark (and a delicious one at that) – Spencer’s Ice Cream, which has been drawing lovers of the homemade frozen treat to their store, located in the center of the town, for the better part of a century.

A Maine summer favorite: ice cream

No one is ever too old for ice cream. From toddlers and teenagers to young couples and senior citizens, we all have a sweet spot that can only be satisfied (especially during the summer months) with an ice cream cone, banana split or milk shake. Our favorite flavors may change as we age, but ice cream is one of those universal treats we never stop enjoying.

In Maine, we are blessed to have more than a few spectacular ice cream shops that make homemade and even seasonal flavors that you just can't find anywhere else. Below is just a sprinkle (rainbow colored, please) of a few of them whose owners gave us the inside scoop on what makes their ice cream such a hit.
