A Scoop of Nostalgia
Salvador's Ice Cream
in South Dartmouth isn't just a spot for a cool treat. It's a roadside attraction like no other. The stand, housed in a lovable giant milk can and topped with Smith Neck Nellie, a fiberglass cow, has been a local institution since 1935 and was renovated in 2005. If you're hitting one of the South Coast's many beaches, stop for a cone or banana split or, if you're hungrier, a burger or lobster roll. And don't forget your camera. Opens Memorial Day. Salvador's Ice Cream, 490 Smith Neck Road, South Dartmouth, 508-996-6106, salvadorsicecream.com.
