Heading north on US Route 1 in Maine you will pass an A-frame building in Perry. This is the Polar Treat ice cream stand a fixture in these parts for decades.
As a kid spending time in the Eastport area, my mother’s hometown, we would make the pilgrimage to the ice cream stand quite often. As kids we would see who could run the farthest up the A-frame without falling. I am sure it is not allowed today.
They are known for their wonderful soft serve but also have nice hard ice cream.
