There still might be some snow on the ground (and heck, it *could* dump snow on us still yet this year... it is Michigan after all...) but spring is right around the corner! So that means West Michigan seasonal ice cream stands like Frosty Boy, Twisters, Dairy Queen, and Heights Cream are opening up.

Sure, you can always grab a pint of ice cream from the grocery store (and there are yummy ice cream spots open year round too!) - but there's something special about getting a scoop from your favorite shop that's only open during the warmer months.

In West Michigan, it's a sure sign that summer is on the way! Growing up in South Haven, it was always SUPER exciting to head to Sherman's Dairy or Dairy Queen for the first time each year - and honestly every time after that, all summer long. To me, summertime means ice cream, sunshine, and hitting up Lake Michigan.
