We can’t really think of a time when ice cream wouldn’t be delicious, but there’s just something about ice cream on a hot summer day! Soft serve, hand dipped, waffle cone, in a bowl, we’ll take ice cream any way it’s served! If you live in the San Antonio area, you’re lucky to be surrounded by a multitude of ice cream shops. Many of them have online reviews claiming that they have the best ice cream ever, but we’ll leave that conclusion up to you. After all, you can’t really decide which ice cream is the best in San Antonio until you’ve tried all the ice cream in San Antonio!

We’ve narrowed down the following list of ice cream shops to the top-rated ones in San Antonio. They each may have specialties that they’re known for, but ice cream is the most notable menu item for all of them. We really can’t think of a better family bucket list than trying and rating the ice cream shops below! Depending on the size of your family, you might choose to order one large bowl of the same flavor ice cream everywhere you go, in order to have a standard ice cream to compare. Or if you’re feeling crazy, maybe you’ll let everyone get their own flavor! Whatever you do, we’d love to know which one you think is the best
