The kids vote it is never too cold for ice-cream and we agree. Head to UDairy on Market Street for ice-cream that is out of this world! This tasty treat is even more spectacular because it is home-made from the milk of local cows from The University of Delaware's Department of Agriculture! If mom and dad aren't up for just ice-cream, try their coffee poured over their famous flavor, 8th & Market. We tried it, and it is delicious and a good caffeine fix!

3. Have a tea party fit for royalty
