Take the edge off from the hot Florida sunshine this summer by visiting some of Fort Lauderdale's best ice cream parlors! From regular scoop ice cream to soft serve, fudge to chocolates, these parlors have plenty of options in store for you.

Wilton Creamery

Probably the most upscale ice creamery you've ever been to, Wilton's doesn't skimp on their decor, atmosphere, or their flavors! Their ice cream is chef-curated and rotated out seasonally, which means there's always something fresh, fun, and new on the menu.

Everything at Wilton's is incredibly well-thought out, especially in regards to their selection as they offer various non-dairy and gluten-free flavors. They even have dog-friendly ice cream!

Chill-N Nitrogen Ice Cream

Chill-N Nitrogen is where science meets ice cream in South Florida as they use a six-step process to ensure that you get the best ice cream possible. First, you pick your base and mix-in's, then they mix it together and- with the magic of science- flash-freeze it right in front of you. Needless to say, they serve up some of the smoothest, creamiest, and freshest ice cream in Fort Lauderdale. Intrigued? It would be CHILL-ing if you weren't!

Yo Mama's Ice Cream

For ice cream that's handmade right in front of you, check out Yo Mama's Ice Cream. They boast that they have the best ice cream in Fort Lauderdale, so it's definitely worth making a trip to! From milkshakes, ice cream scoops, sundaes, and even popcorn, Yo Mama's has it all. Although the prices aren't the cheapest in town, the flavor is worth every penny.

Jaxson's Ice Cream

Interested in ice cream with a side of an American history lesson? If so, Jaxson's Ice Cream is the place to be! They're an old-fashioned ice cream parlor with one of the country's largest collections of rural American memorabilia, including a world-class automobile license plate collection. Having been featured on the Food Network and Good Morning America, Jaxson's is infamous for their delicious creations and entertaining decor.


You might've seen a Kilwin's on your travels as there are various locations across the state, but Kilwin's is unlike most chain restaurants. Their ice cream, chocolates, and fudge are always fresh, and their hand-dipped candy apples crackle and crunch with every bite. With over 40-signature flavors, there's bound to be a treat for every taste bud.

Many of these places in Fort Lauderdale are always busy, so be prepared to wait for that perfect scoop but, I promise you, they're more than worth it!
