Northern Virginia soft serve shops are a staple in the area. They normally close in the winter, but the majority are beginning to open up this month! Here are some popular ice cream shops which are already open or are opening very soon!

Nathan's Dairy Bar: The popular outdoor ice cream bar in Manassas is off of Mathis Ave. It was featured in Buzzfeed's Best Soft Serve Places in the U.S. article last year which created a lot of buzz for the small shop. The dairy bar opened today, March 13th. If you were one of the first 100 people there, you may have received a FREE small cup or cone. 

Effee's Frozen Favorites: This Warrenton ice cream shop is opening their 2018 season tomorrow, March 14th, weather permitting. With only wind in the forecast, locals will definitely be coming out to support Effee's who have been closed since early November of last year.

Carousel Frozen Treats: Another Warrenton ice cream shop is going to start their season on St. Patrick's Day! On Saturday, March 17th, this shop will be hosting many locals for swirling ice cream cones.

Pickle Bob's: Pickle Bob's in Haymarket is already open! They began serving ice cream on March 10th near Old Town Haymarket.
