Just in time for hot summer days, we’ve rounded up these top spots for ice cream factory tours and refreshing treats (provided you can eat it faster than it melts). See how ice cream is made by joining one of these factory tours, or visit a working farm, ice cream museum, or ice cream parlor to learn about the process — and get a taste.
