Here in the Holy City, we are fortunate for countless joys that Charleston provides. One of our favorites is the extended summer season. Just because school is back in session and fall months are approaching doesn’t mean that long, sun-shiny days and weekend beach trips are over just yet. And what’s the best way to cool off while beating the heat in Charleston? ICE CREAM! Enjoy these last weeks of summer by walking around the historic downtown with a good ‘ole fashioned ice cream cone in your hand.
Jeni’s King Street
Located in a lively, up and coming area of King Street, you are sure to be blown away by Jeni’s exotic flavors. A standard cup or homemade cone comes with two flavors and the shop encourages tasting. Try sampling the ‘Wildberry Lavender’ or the ‘Goat Cheese with Red Cherries.’ Or just stick with the ‘Milkiest Chocolate in the World’ flavor to be safe.
With two locations on Meeting Street and King Street, there is no excuse not to indulge in one of Charleston’s sweetest treats. Enjoy various combinations of ice cream wrapped in a delicious cookie sandwich. From peanut butter chiffon to molten chocolate, there is a new flavor for everyone to discover.
Located on King Street directly across from the hotel, Freddo is your one stop shop for authentic gelato. All the way from Argentina, Freddo specializes in only using natural and raw ingredients to prepare a 100% artisanal product. Enjoy four exclusive flavors just in Charleston: Italian Mascarpone, Irish Cream, Chocolate Mousse, and Dulce De Leche.
This dessert café is tucked into the heart of the City Market just out the doors of the hotel. Sit inside at a romantic table and indulge in homemade milkshakes, ice cream sundaes, and even dessert Martinis. There is certainly something for everyone at Kaminsky’s!
