What better way to celebrate summer and warm weather than with an ice cream trail? Here’s our Madison County guide to the best ice cream shops in the area!

Starting on the southern end of the county in Pendleton, we have the iconic drive-in *Jimmie’s Dairy Bar, where tangerine cones reign supreme, and the (obviously) yummy Yummerful – Ice Cream & Treats with their colorful scoops and to-go pints!
Next on your drive, head northwest and stop in Lapel at Lapel’s Ice Cream Plus, where you can get a delicious sundae to share at the picnic tables!
Head east to try the premium and uniquely-named flavors at the family-run *Dapper Cat Cafe, then relax outside at another iconic drive-in that just screams summertime — *Frazier’s Dairy Maid. Afterwards, take yourself out of this world to *Uranus Indiana, where fudge may be the star, but the ice cream is beyond worth it, too.
At the northern end of the county, make sure to hit local favorite Dortee’s Drive In in Alexandria for a delicious banana split, MJ’s Scoops in Frankton for your own waffle bowl stacked up high, and *Taylors Dairy in Elwood for a choice between 70 incredible flavors!
