TO be honest with you I lived in Chicago for 5 years prior to moving to Quincy, and I always thought of it as a GREAT Ice Cream city, there seems to be multiple ice cream shops in every neighborhood, BUT I don't necessarily agree with how this website determined which cities are the best ice cream cities, but then again I think it is a pretty hard to screw up ice cream, I don't think I've ever been to a city that I would say is a BAD ice cream city, have you?
