Maple View Farm Ice Cream, Hillsborough, North Carolina NC

Description

If you're tired of being enclosed by forest and want to see some open vistas, come to Maple View Farm! Here you can sit out on a wide patio in a rocking chair and look out on corn fields, rolling hills, and blue sky! Groups of bicyclists zoom by, and plenty of kids arrive at noon when the ice cream begins to be served. Come early on the weekend before it gets crowded! On Sunday evening there's a long line that winds out the door! It's a fun scene, with everyone watching the sunset over the farmlands. People play frisbee or dance with hula hoops on the side lawn.
Maple View Farm ice cream is creamy and delicious. Black Cherry, Cherry Chocolate, and Rocky Ridge Road are good flavors. Skip the more experimental flavors. Ask for a freshly baked waffle cone!
If you just want the ice cream and don't care about the farm view experience, you can buy from a little stand inside University Place, a tiny mall in the middle of Chapel Hill, at 201 S. Estes Drive. 
After, work off some of your calories on a walk at beautiful Lake Hogan Farm Greenway.
