Discover the Sweetest Adventure: The Crawford County Ice Cream Passport

If you’re an ice cream lover looking for a fun and delicious adventure, the Crawford County Ice Cream Passport is your ticket to a sweet summer experience! This delightful program invites you to explore five unique ice cream shops across Crawford County, collecting stamps along the way and earning a special T-shirt to commemorate your journey. Here’s everything you need to know to get started.

What is the Crawford County Ice Cream Passport?

The Crawford County Ice Cream Passport is a summer program designed to encourage locals and visitors alike to explore the county’s best ice cream spots. The concept is simple: visit each participating ice cream shop, enjoy a tasty treat, and get your passport stamped. Once you’ve collected stamps from all five locations, you can claim your exclusive Ice Cream Passport T-shirt as a reward for your dedication (and sweet tooth).

How to Participate

  1. Pick Up Your Passport: You can grab your free Ice Cream Passport at any of the participating ice cream shops or the Crawford County Welcome Center.
  2. Visit the Shops: The passport features five beloved ice cream shops in Crawford County. Visit each one, sample their delicious offerings, and ask the staff to stamp your passport.
  3. Collect Your Reward: After you’ve collected all five stamps, head to the designated location (check the passport for details) to claim your T-shirt.

The Ice Cream Shops

Each shop on the passport offers a unique experience and flavor selection, making this journey as diverse as it is delicious. Here’s a sneak peek at the participating ice cream spots:

  1. Stephenson’s General Store
  2. The Happy Hive
  3. Curbette
  4. Out of the Blue
  5. Marengo Sweet Shop at Marengo Cave

Tips for Your Ice Cream Adventure

  • Plan Ahead: Some shops may have seasonal hours or special events, so it’s a good idea to check their websites or call ahead.
  • Pace Yourself: While it’s tempting to try to visit all five shops in one day, spreading out your visits lets you savor the experience (and avoid a sugar rush).
  • Bring Friends and Family: Ice cream is best enjoyed with loved ones. Turn your passport journey into a fun outing for the whole family or a group of friends.
