This post is part of a daily series giving you tips and recommendations on what to do in the Boston area.

Wait. 70 degree weather? FREE ice cream? Are we dreaming?

From noon-8 p.m. today, Ben and Jerry's will offer up a free scoop during their annual Free Cone Day, a tradition the brand has upheld since 1979. Indulge in this free treat at the Harvard Square, Park Plaza, Newbury Street, and Prudential Center locations.

Which flavor will you choose from the Vermont-based company? My vote goes with Liz Lemon Greek frozen yogurt.

Looking for other free things to do this month? Here are more suggestions.

Take advantage of one of the warmest days this year (so far) by enjoying some sun in one of Boston's many parks. We recommend Olmsted Park in Jamaica Plain. After some sun bathing, go for a bike ride on one of the park's paved paths. If you want other choices, check out our round up.

Did we say it may be 70 degrees? Yup, and we think that's a cause for celebration. Grab a cool margarita and pretend you're on vacation, just like Don and Megan (obviously, we're still thinking about "Mad Men"). Our pick is the hibiscus margarita at Zocalo in the Back Bay.
35 Stanhope St., Boston.
