America's Best Cities for Ice Cream
No. 14 Philadelphia
Philly got props in the survey for being cultured, with great museums and plenty of free things to do. While the Franklin Fountain on Market Street may not date back to Benjamin’s days, it offers nostalgic flavors such as a salty-almond version of rocky road (first created after the market crash in 1929) and a wintergreenish teaberry, like the vintage chewing gum. Capogiro (with four locations, including Rittenhouse Square and Passyunk), meanwhile, serves authentic Italian gelato flavors like hazelnut and Sicilian pistachio.
