It’s summer in the city! Locals looking to escape the
scorching temps—but who don’t want to deal with the gridlock traffic heading to
the shore—may be turning to fruity drinks and air conditioning to cool off. If
you want to escape the heat and reward your taste buds in the process—all while
taking in the sights and sounds of the city—venture out to one of the local ice
cream shops near your 1500 Locust apartment. Center City is brimming with
confectionary creativity, and a stroll to the ice cream shop is a great way to
enjoy a summer night in Philly with friends, or to put a unique spin on date
Luckily, there are lots of sweet spots within walking
distance of your 1500 Locust apartment, including Scoop DeVille. The shop is
celebrating 20 years in operation in 2019—so you know it knows what it’s doing
when it comes to ice cream! Scoop DeVille is the only shop in the city that
lets you create your very own soft-serve flavor on the spot—so if it’s choice
and variety you’re after, this is your spot.
Choose your base from 15 different flavors, ranging from
chocolate to cookies and cream to butter pecan. There are sugar-free options,
sorbets, fat-free selections and even dairy-free—so no matter your diet or dietary
needs, you can find a flavor that suits you. From there, get mixing! Scoop
DeVille offers an eye-popping 85 different mix-in options. There are the
standard options like chocolate chips, marshmallows, peanut butter and cookie
dough—or you can really kick it up a notch in creativity! Add in everything
from cream cheese to maple syrup, and potato chips to Nutella. The
possibilities are, quite literally, endless! Each create-your-own ice cream
comes with three toppings, or you can add on even more for an additional cost.
You can even extend your creativity to how your ice cream is served—cone or
cup, or spice it up with a create-your-own chipwich or milkshake.
Scoop DeVille is just five blocks from your 1500 Locust
apartment, so if you’re looking for a fun outing with a sweet ending all
without breaking too much of a sweat this summer, pack your appetite and check
