Top Ten Things to do

Anna Maria Island Top Seven Ice Cream Shops

This information page provides Anna Maria Island top ten ice cream shops.  Well summer is here once again!  Nothing is better than spending a day on the beach soaking up the warm Florida Sun, and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. One of my favorite things to do after a day at the beach, and one of the best ways to cool down during the summer heat on Anna Maria Island is to grab an ice cream treat.  So I spent the day traveling the Island in search of the best ice cream and candy treats in the area.

Dips Ice Cream

Dips Ice Cream, located at  503 Pine Ave in Anna Maria, has been serving Anna Maria Island delicious ice cream since 1993. Though this ice cream shop is more than just a place to go for a sugar rush. Dips is also a candy & sports shop. 

Adults will enjoy the many throwback candies, including bottle caps, wax lips and jaw breakers.  Kids will like the dotted ice cream pellets and general abundance of delicious refined sugar. And with over 30 flavors of ice cream (including non-dairy), you’re sure to find a treat you’ll enjoy! Did I mention they also have Mango and Tangerine Italian ice? Because they do, and it is the perfect way to cool down on one of Florida’s hot summer days.
