We all love the beach, and of coarse Long Beach Island beaches the best! As much as we’d like to think there is nothing that can get us off the beach on a hot summer day, as soon as we hear the words “ice cream”, it’s always followed shortly by a grumble in our stomachs and we just know that we’ll have to take a break from the water and sun and grab a scoop (or two!). LBI is home to some of the best ice cream, and all in close proximity to the beach. This summer know where to take your sweet tooth with this list of the best ice cream shops in LBI!
