My new favorite sweet spot when traveling to Charlottesville, VA is the MOO THRU on James Madison Hwy. The place is fantastic! The company slogan pretty much says it all:
Real ice cream from real dairy farmers
Every time I drive by this well known roadside destination spot it is packed with lines of cars waiting to go through the drive through and crowds of people sitting outside enjoying homemade ice cream and much more. Moo Thru is known for using locally sourced ingredients for their ice cream, shakes, milk and more.
Highly recommended if you have the time to make a pit stop when driving between Charlottesville and Washington DC!
