Big School Ice Cream Cone

This is literally in front of an elementary school, along the pickup lane of the driveway. We visited after school was out for summer. It would definitely be easiest to stop here after school hours, on weekends or during the summer. This is also right off old Route 66.

Big School Ice Cream Cone

Quaint little school with very "cool" ice cream cone sculpture in front of the building. Kids of all ages will enjoy this brief stop. About 5 min off of Rt 44. Great way to break up the drive.

Incongruously in front of the elementary school since 1992, after a half century of encouraging childhood brain chills/sugar highs at the local Velvet Freeze.
