Even though I knew this was not a factory tour, I thought there would be more information about Blue Bunny. They really should improve this so it's worth stopping at. What you will see - huge gift shop, ice cream for sale, a few items in cases on the second floor. That's it. They also have restrooms for you to... More

We stopped here on our way to South Dakota because I have always wanted to visit. My husband was disappointed because he thought we were visiting/touring the actual factory. So,be aware that it truly is just an ice cream parlor with a gift shop and some historical artifacts upstairs. There are spots for cute photo opps and of course the... More

Who doesn't love ice cream? What a fun stop for mom, dad and three teenage girls! The most important thing I'll say is that we made this stop on our road trip and made it a point to stop AGAIN on the way home just a couple of days later. After a long day of complaining in the car, one... More

Our family stopped here on our way out to South Dakota, and it was worth the stop. The building is beautiful. Also, there are several good photos opportunities. Most importantly, we were impressed and satisfied with the ice cream, and there is a wide variety of offerings to suit almost all tastes. If there is any downside, it's that the... More

Every year when driving through LeMars, Iowa on the way to our summer family reunion we have to stop at the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor. It is a family tradition. GREAT ice cream. Cones, shakes and sundaes. A cool old-fashioned ice cream parlor with fun history about ice cream and a charming gift shop. And probably the biggest sized... More

For 17 years I have been stopping here with my children. Today as we were driving back from Nebraska they begged me to stop again. We remembered the old building with the play palace...thanks for the great ice cream and all the great memories!

Blue Bunny Ice Cream is a favorite in the midwest and LeMars is home to the famous ice cream company. If you love a good ice cream cone, don't miss this stop. Although it's billed as a museum and ice cream parlor, it is basically an ice cream shop with a gift shop. They serve about 25 different flavors -... More
