Add in this freshly arrived summer heat, another round of "this could have been handled in an email," and you have what derailed my day.

Welcome to one of the best ice cream spots in the city. Nestled away in Old Town and conveniently located on the corner of Grand River Ave. and Center Street.

Voted Lansing's Best Ice Cream 4 years in row.
Voted Best Lemon Ice Cream in the State of Michigan.

When the heat is on and you're having an especially bad day, chill...and slide on over to Old Town.

Arctic Corner is now open for the 2021 summer season 12 noon to 9 pm everyday.

Get there early. There's usually a ridiculous line but they are fast and friendly.
