Get the Scoop

Summer is the perfect time to visit Lake Tahoe - the sky is blue, the trees are green and the air is warm. And with summer's heat comes that sweetest of treats, ice cream! You must make Richardson's Ice Cream Parlor part of your travel plan. The building is a bit kitschy, the lone bathroom a little faded - and that's okay, because you're just there for the delicious frozen treats.

Serving sizes are, to say the least, generous. Think of Richardson's as a destination, not just a spot to grab a snack. 2 scoops equal roughly a pint of ice cream. Try the rainbow sherbet, butter pecan and Kona coffee flavors - or the enormous brownie sundae. Yum!

Be forewarned: there may be lineups.
