Franklin Fountain

If the children are screaming for ice cream, head to Franklin Fountain in Old City, an old fashioned ice cream saloon run by brothers Ryan and Eric Berley. Specialties include handmade ice cream, banana splits, thick shakes, sundaes, and flavored soda water. Try the Franklin mint chip — named for you-know-who — an all natural blend of white peppermint, green crème de menthe, and dark bittersweet chocolate chunks.
