Sadly closing Sept 7th, 2015. We visited from Alabama -- glad we took the detour!

This popular ice cream store usually closes for the season by Labor Day. It's under new ownership in 2015, so perhaps it will return next season.

A bit old. Needs a paint job, especially on the eyes.

Everyone in town knows what I'm talking about, the place with the eyeballs. Outside Double D's Ice Cream Factory stands a giant fiberglass cone with eyes. The kids cones inside get sugar eyeballs to match, and sometimes the grownups if you ask nicely!
