Allegany County, Maryland, Launches New Ice Cream TrailNine local ice cream establishments across the region are featured in this self-guided road trip
July 9, 2018 – CUMBERLAND, MD – It is officially summer and it is officially July, which means it is National Ice Cream month. So what is one to do to officially celebrate? Dig into the sweet flavors of a cooling scoop of ice cream. And, look no further, because Allegany County Tourism has launched an official Ice Cream Trail that features nine area establishments and stretches from one end of the county to the other.
“Food trails and culinary-focused travel are popular reasons for road trips,” stated Ashli Workman, Director of Tourism for Allegany County, Maryland. “Destinations across the country boast their beer, wine, and coffee trails. Here in Allegany County, we have an abundance of great ice cream locations, so we thought, why not highlight and create our very own experience for travelers.”
The featured ice cream locations include:
Originally, Allegany County Tourism launched the trail through their blog – http://mdmountainblog.com/ice-cream-trail, and shared on their social media channels.
“The response was immediate and overwhelming with the reaction being one of pure affection for the idea,” shared Workman.
Because of the public’s feedback, a rack card was developed, which features the route of the trail on the front and a list of the nine businesses, their phone numbers, and addresses, on the back. Rack cards are available for pick up at the Allegany County Visitor Center, located at 13 Canal Street, Cumberland, Maryland, as well as other area establishments.
