The South Coast is a great place to buy a home. We are just an hour away from the trendy buzz of Boston, but with the quiet slow pace of small-town living. We are just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Atlantic Ocean and there is never a dull moment on a beautiful summers day.
Here at EZ Home Search Real Estate our agents live and work on the South Coast. We’ve composed a list of all of their favorite places to go and things to do on the South Coast.
Below is a list of our all time favorite ice cream places. Try them out for yourself and see if you agree with us!
Somerset Creamery- Somerset Creamery is known for having some of the best homemade ice cream in Southern New England. For almost seventy years now Somerset Creamery has been serving up a tasty treat to visitors of all ages. Everytime you walk into Somerset Creamery the aroma of freshly made waffle cones hits your nose and sends your stomach into an ice cream cone frenzy.

Wood’s Farm- Blink and you might miss it. Wood’s is a small family owned ice cream stand that serves up not only ice cream, but also an authentic Westport experience. The stand is situated at Wood’s farm, so as you are enjoying your cone, you can be entertained by the farm animals that live near by. In true Westport fashion, every customer at Wood’s is treated like an old family friend, which also means that you get a big ice cream cone for the amount of money you pay. Visit Wood’s at 17 Adamsville Rd, Westport Ma. You won’t be disappointed!
Handy Hill Creamery- Handy Hill is also a classic Westport ice cream place. The big difference though is that Handy Hill is just feet from route 88, so it caters a lot more to beach goers than old townies. Though the town is pretty divided about which ice cream stand is better, Handy Hill does do something that no other stand in town does-- $1 ice cream cones. Yup that’s right! Every weeknight after 7pm Handy Hill serves up a $1 soft serve cone! To get your own yummy cone visit Handy Hill at 55 Hix Bridge Rd and for more info check out their Facebook Page.
Gray’s Ice Cream- Gray’s Ice Cream is a farm stand in Tiverton, RI that also serves up some of the best flavored ice cream on the South Coast. Gray’s is known for having tons of exotic flavors to choose from. At Gray’s you can order anything from Orange Pineapple to Cherry Vanilla to Pumpkin. And if you’re not an adventurous ice cream eater, then you can still order a classic flavor such as Mint Chocolate Chip, Cookie Dough or even plain old Chocolate & Vanilla. Gray’s is located at 16 East Rd, but if you aren’t yet convinced you want to try a crazy new flavor maybe check out their yelp page first. I promise even their craziest flavors are delicious.
The Moose Cafe- One thing this list was lacking was a REALLY good soft serve ice cream place. Well, the Moose Cafe in Tiverton the place to go if you want to try one of over a hundred soft serve ice cream flavors. Thats right over ONE HUNDRED. It is a soft serve lovers dream! Check out the website for a full list of flavors or take a drive to 1160 Stafford Road to get a taste.
