Richardson’s Ice Cream
Unlike some seasonal ice cream stands, Richardson’s two locations in Middleton and Reading are open year round. Head to Middleton for two mini golf courses, a driving range, and batting cages, or marvel at the giant jelly bean banana split atop the Reading stand, located inside Jordan’s Furniture.
Try: Totally Turtle (vanilla ice cream with cashews, chunks of fudge, and a caramel twirl); Maine Black Bear (red raspberry ice cream with chocolate chips and chocolate-covered raspberry truffles).
