Good News from A Great City Haverhill, MA

Last Minute ICE CREAM Run in Haverhill

Some of us scream for ice cream, others just go crazy for it

You know those summer nights when the air is so thick and humid you feel like you have to push through it. Especially right after dinner while the kitchen is still hot from the oven or stove. And you feel like maybe winter wasn’t so bad after all. The Heartbeat of Haverhill knows the long standing cure for the heat and humidity malaise, ICE CREAM! But with the summer sun hanging lazily in the sky for extra hours each July and August we lose track of the time and risk missing our chance to cool it. On a hot summer night in Haverhill, what time is LAST CALL FOR ICE CREAM?

Richardson’s lemon and raspberry sorbet

We have so much geographic area here in Haverhill, you know there have to be multitudes of ice cream shops across the 36 miles.. Here is The Heartbeat of Haverhill handy guide to ice cream in our city….where to get it, where to eat it, how to pay for it, how late you can get it.

Always call ahead, many of these are very small businesses and hours can change inexplicably as can the allowance of credit cards.

Now get ready for a mad dash for ice cream.
