There’s a Rita’s and a Haagen-Dazs on South Street, but our favorite place for frozen dessert is Big Gay. Sure it’s a chain from New York, but their soft serve is incredible, and we’re especially fans of the Salty Pimp. It’s caramel-filled vanilla swirl on a cone, covered with pretzel pieces and dipped into a chocolate shell. There are other great options as well, like ice cream sandwiches and sundaes, but the Salty Pimp is what you should get on your first trip here.
