Little Man Ice Cream
It's easy to find Little Man Ice Cream: Just check around for the 28-foot-tall milk can. This iconic landmark is not just about head-turning looks, it’s about serving the freshest ice cream. Located across the river from Denver’s LoDo neighborhood, Little Man Ice Cream is definitely worth the stroll across the footbridge. The rotating menu includes classic flavors as well as some pretty interesting variations like French Toast and Purple Cow.

Denver's Best Ice Cream
I knew immediately when I walked up to this massive tin-looking building, that Little Man Ice Cream was going to be a special experience. The wrap-around-the-building line was the indicator. With unique flavors like French Toast and Jack Daniels Caramel Toffee, what really sets Little Man Ice Cream, located right downtown and in the Lower Highlands neighborhood of Denver, apart is its social mission: for every scoop of ice cream sold, it donates a 3 ounce scoop of rice/beans to a developing country around the world. Now, that's a sweet mission that just about any ice cream enthusiast can get behind.
