Summer is upon us in the Hudson Valley. We can embrace the warm, sunny days filled with activities for all ages, outdoor festivities and more.

Summer wouldn't be complete without visiting our favorite ice cream stands in the Hudson Valley. Whether it's for a lunch date or late night treat, our local ice cream stands serve up delicious scoops, sundaes and food options.

Ice Cream Stands And Trucks Are Now Open All Throughout The Hudson Valley


I instantly smile when I hear an ice cream truck playing its music, driving down the road. It brings me back to being a kid and getting ice cream during the summer.

There's a large selection of locally owned ice cream stands to choose from in each county which can allow decision making of the best selection difficult.

Some of our favorite ice cream flavors make us happy and keep us cool on warm days.
