Cherry Garcia, Southern Praline Pecan & Oreo Overload.. Oh My! #NationalIceCreamDay

Let's face it, there are certain days on the calendar we don't look forward to. For some of us, that dreaded day is Tax Day or your annual dentist (or insert other medical professionals here) appointment; for others, it may be when the in-laws make their arrival or for students, it could be the first day back in the classroom. But for all those sometimes negative but necessary occasions, there are also days we count down to, the Christmases, the first day of summer and anniversaries but for us at Broadway at the Beach, it's Sunday, July 16th, otherwise known as National Ice Cream Day!

We have a plethora of ice cream pints and plenty of flavors to pick at our ice cream shops at Broadway! Our restaurants have plenty of cool delights too, but we're devoting this blog to the eateries that are devoted to the love of all things ice cream, Ben & Jerry's, Cold Stone Creamery and Kilwins!

Delicious Duo, Ben & Jerrys!

We have doubled the deliciousness of the world-famous brand with two locations at Broadway (Ben & Jerry's South, located in the New England Fishing Village near Starbucks and Ben & Jerry's North located in the Charleston Boardwalk near Paula Deen's Family Kitchen). Whether you're in the mood for some Cherry Garcia, orUrban Bourbon or need some Blondie Ambition, grab a cone and taste the euphoric concoctions made with wholesome, natural ingredients at Ben & Jerry's.

Cool Down With Cold Stone

If it's one of their perfectly crafted creations you crave or to mix it up with your own mix-in must haves, ice cream connoisseurs can find something that is perfect for their palate at Cold Stone Creamery! Located in Heroes Harbor across from Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, this nationally recognized shop features super-premium ice cream made fresh in the store every day! The ice creams are perfectly divine all by themselves, but we prefer to add in some deliciousness with a variety of mix-ins and watch as they blend it all together on a frozen granite stone! Did we mention they have ice cream cakes? They do!To order one, click here!

Keep It Classic With Kilwins

With their motto, "Sweet in every Sense since 1947", Kilwins has created decadent treats with the finest ingredients and exceptional confectionary service for 70 years with locations across the U.S. including right here at Broadway at the Beach in the Mediterranean Village! One taste of their rich, yet refreshing ice cream and you will be hooked! (P.S., get a sample of their Southern Praline Pecan. You can thank us later!) Whether you prefer your ice cream in a freshly made waffle cone or in a cup, you will always remember your first taste of Kilwins Ice Cream and you'll want to come back again and again!

There are plenty of places to celebrate National Ice Cream Day at Broadway at the Beach! So when you're enjoying the hot summer day of Sunday, July 16th, be sure to cool down with your favorite ice cream with us!

Spring Forward Into Fashion, Food & Fun At Broadway

On Sunday, March 12th, it will happen. Whether we like it or not, it will happen. Whether we are ready for it or not, it will happen. It's the day when we lose an hour of sleep and the day we have an excuse for that third trip to Starbucks before noon. Okay, this is sounding negative, so let's try again.

On Sunday, March 12th, it will happen. It's the day the sun begins to shine a little longer. It's the day we unofficially say goodbye to the winter woes. It's the day we spring forward into a new season. It's daylight savings time!

Although the official beginning of Spring 2017 isn't until Monday, March 20th, we'll already be in the new season spirit after we cross daylight savings time off the calendar! And Broadway has a plethora of ways to help us get in the new spring swing of things! First up; shopping.

The annual chore of putting away the sweaters and coats and pulling out the sandals and sun dresses can be made more enjoyable when adding a few new stylish pieces from Denim Exchange and Bijuju and grabbing a new pair of designer shades from Sunglass Hut! Don't forget, a new ensemble isn't complete until you step into the season with a new pair of Crocs or by stopping by Rack Room Shoes to lace up a new pair of running shoes.

There's another way to let go of the winter blues at Broadway.

Grab a seat, sip on something sweet and take in the warmer season at one of our dining hotspots that feature outdoor seating! Whether you're on the patio of Liberty Brewery & Grill, on the deck of Johnny Rockets or Landry's Seafood, you're sure to find something to quench your thirst and to fill your belly. If you're up for a little people watching while enjoying something delicious, Hard Rock Café, Wahlburgers and American Tap House have a seat waiting for you!

The list of ways to enjoy the longer days of spring at Broadway can go on and on, from feeding the newest ducklings to taking in the newest blockbuster at the Big D Theatre to exploring the depths of the ocean at Ripley's Aquarium to voyaging to the unknown of space at WonderWorks, there are plenty of places to enjoy the season of new beginnings at Broadway!
