Nothing tops a towering ice cream cone from Still Four Corners in Rutland after a day of floating around Long Pond. Order from the window and find a seat on the open air porch, then head inside to make use of the screen room when the sun goes down.

Everyone is talking about the town of Hudson, Worcester’s artsy annex, so it’s no surprise that New City Microcreamery has craft ice cream down to a science in its scratch kitchen.
