The weather may be cold, but it could be argued there is no wrong time to enjoy ice cream. Especially if it is homemade and comes in seasonal flavors like gingerbread, sugar cookie, and egg nog. For these delicious and fun flavors visit Dippity Do Dahs Homemade Ice Cream.

All of these delicious delights are great for the whole family to enjoy but this time of year can get busy and we can’t forget that the adults need some downtime to enjoy too. The chocolate martini at the Steuben Bar at the Radisson Hotel Corning is equal parts delicious and relaxing after a busy day. After a long day of shopping on Market Street enjoy a nice dinner at The Cellar Modern Fusion Restaurant and end with an experience you can’t miss. Bring out your inner kid when s'mores are made right at your table. A sweet treat that is fun to make and eat!
