And in summer, when the sun is high above the landscape, following this guide to our favorite cool treats will help you beat the summer heat in Galveston. 

Cool Off from the Inside Out 

A cold and sweet ice cream cone enjoyed on a summer day makes us feel as if we will never have to grow up—as well as having the added benefit of cooling us off from the inside out! When the craving for ice cream hits in Galveston, one of the most popular spots in town is La King’s Confectionary, located at 2323 Strand St. They offer much more than ice cream though; this local shop is a throwback to old fashioned candy and soda shops of days gone by! You’re sure to find something to sate your sweet tooth at La King’s.
