Best ice cream

Martha's Dandee Cream, Lake George. It isn't that Martha has some killer secret recipe, it's just that this ice cream joint and its kitschy old rooster sign stand next to the summer paradise of Lake George, N.Y., where you and your child may whet your ice-cream appetites with a day of swimming, diving, kayaking fishing and rock-skipping in and around the mild lake waters. Flavors include peanut butter, maple walnut and apple pie.
