Original Rainbow Cone – You can’t go wrong with an Original Rainbow Cone. A famous and almost downright iconic refreshing treat in the city of Chicago. I love to look at a rainbow cone. Makes you smile. Well, it makes me smile.

Dairy Palace - All around good ice cream in both the hand packed and soft serve worlds. They even make a strawberry soft serve on site. Love this place, since they play music from the 1950's. Think a moment from the film, American Graffiti.
Downtown Tinley Park
Capannari Ice Cream - An entertaining ice cream locale filled with good flavors. A packed list of events to boot.
10 S. Pine Street, Mount Prospect
Batavia Creamery - A wide assortment of different flavors are the highlight of this ice cream delight. Outdoor seating is a wonder on a hot day.

Don't fear the chain. Baskin Robbins has superb ice cream in a variety of flavors and they are pretty much all over the place. Also, the American superstar of ice cream chains is Dairy Queen. When you travel along the nation's highways you begin to expect to see signage for the DQ and it is somewhat comforting to know they are there.
