Are you and your family looking for some creamy, fresh-made ice cream in Philadelphia? Franklin Fountain will have exactly what you need to satiate the cravings for delicious cold treats.

Friday night we decided to make an impromptu run across the bridge into Philadelphia to get some ice cream. Sure, we could have gotten some here in South Jersey, but itís more of a night out when we head into Philadelphia. If we stay on this side of the bridge, itís just going to get ice cream.

I did a quick search for best ice cream places in Philadelphia and came up with Franklin Fountain. Iíve heard others sing its praises before, but my family had never been there. Itís an old-fashioned ice cream parlor thatís famous for its fresh, homemade ice cream made with local cream and other local ingredients scooped out by old-timey soda jerks who serve the customers.
