No. 15 Orlando, FL
In this kid-friendly town, ice cream stands and parlors may be the equivalent of coffee joints in Seattle: essential to everyday life. Away from the theme parks, check out Twisted Bliss in Ivanhoe Village—with ice cream–filled waffle tacos—or Lu Lu’s Ice Cream Shop in Winter Park, which is housed in a cottage that could be next door to the seven dwarfs’ place, and prides itself on using Florida milk and produce. Orlando also ranked well in the survey for abundant hotel options and places to visit at Christmas.
