Words to live by! Seen at Nonno’s Ice Cream Shoppe

I scream, you scream – well, you know the rest! Fall River has some great ice cream and frozen treat options – so why are we always hearing about places outside the city? It’s time to put Fall River on the map this summer and highlight the options within city limits!

Never fear, Viva Fall River is here to help you find the best spots in Fall River for a sweet treat to beat the heat (or a delicious frozen dessert that can be enjoyed any time of the year!) it was a tough job, as you can imagine eating ice cream for research would be, but our map offers 16 unique locations to find ice cream or ice cream-inspired menu items at some great locations in Fall River. So get ready for icy goodness, but, take it slow. We can’t be responsible for any brain freezes that result!

If we’ve missed any of YOUR favorites, please let us know! We did some extensive research (and tasting!) to find the 16 featured locations on our list, but if we inadvertantly missed one, please email us at Curious about where ice cream comes from? Do a little of your own research here (it’s always fun to find out new info!)
