Frozen in Time

An ice-cream stand that will take you back



arfar’s Danish Ice Cream Shop will take you back to the days of lazy summers at the beach, big portions of creamy coldness—even bubble gum, peppermint stick, and cotton candy. Those are three of the favorite flavors of the regulars at this friendly seasonal ice-cream stand, many of them customers since childhood. Farfar’s offers 22 varieties in all, which alternate based on the availability of fresh fruits and other ingredients, including strawberry, blueberry, peach, and lemon. Jacobson



Duxbury was once a popular summer resort town for Bostonians who stayed at oceanside hotels or took day trips to the beach on the Duxbury & Cohasset Railroad, which was completed in 1871, for 75 cents each way.
