Did you know that July is national ice cream month? And in honor of the national celebration - and everyone's favorite summer treat - Atlanta hosts an ice cream festival each July!

This year the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival will take place Saturday, July 22nd from 11-6 pm.  In addition to ice cream, the festival also features games and activities, as well as health and nutrition education.  And, no ice cream festival would be complete without the traditional ice cream eating contest!

But don't worry if you're not able to make it out to Piedmont Park this year for the festival - Atlanta has plenty of delicious ice cream shops to choose from this summer. Here are a few of my top recommendations!

Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream:   Though originating in Ohio, Jeni's is quickly becoming an Atlanta ice cream staple.  Best of all, there are four locations in the metro area - Westside Provisions, Decatur Square, Krog Street Market, and Avalon.

Morelli's Gourmet Ice Cream: For almost 10 years, Morelli's has been serving some of the best ice cream not only in the city - but country. The original shop is located off Moreland Avenue, with additional shops in Dunwoody (inside Farm Burger) and Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.

8 Degrees Fahrenheit Ice Cream: Thai-rolled ice cream is the newest ice cream craze - and watching it get made is half the fun  The most popular location is located off of Buford Highway in Doraville, but there are also locations in Cumming and Duluth!

Frosty Caboose - This charming shop serves its tasty treats out of a vintage red caboose.  Situated next the the railroad tracks in downtown Chamblee, this is a favorite spot for kids!
