Mr Cone, Monroe, New York
The Orange Heritage Trail presently goes from Monroe, NY to Goshen, NY as a paved trail and then a couple more miles unpaved. We biked the length of it – and really enjoyed it. We were informed that it will soon be extended to Middletown! A great bike ride begs to be followed by a great ice cream.
Mr. Cone in Monroe, New York was rrecommended to me by a blog reader , Laura, who also grew up in Monroe and had fond memories of the ice cream there. Much to my surprise I had no problems finding it from the airplane play ground where we got on the Orange Heritage Trail (when I was small child, I loved that airplane park. We could climb up and sit in the piolets seat and move the controls, pretending to fly the airplane – if that did not make the metal fatigue, I do not know what would. We would also crawl through the belly of the plane, and I nearly got stuck in there a few times!- it was always fun!) Anyway back to Mr. Cone – this ice cream stand that has everyting an ice cream aficionado could want – numerous homemade flavors of ice cream, milkshakes, sundaes – you get the picture. – I sor of whimped out and got soft vanilla in a waffle cone with rainbow sprinkles – that is what the person in front of me got, and it looked really, really good -I was not disappointed!. There were several picnic tables in the back of the shop to sit and enjoy your ice cream. It was a fun visit – I will have to go again to try some of the other flavors!
