When thinking of a place to get some cool ice cream on a hot day most moms in Guelph head to the Boathouse. http://theboathouseguelph.ca/
The Boathouse is located on Gordon Street and is central in Guelph. With ice cream available from May to October with 16 featured flavours and endless possibilities, the Boathouse is a family favourite. Once you have ordered and the sun is shining, you can walk along the river side and enjoy the simple beauty of one of Guelph's staple tea rooms.
