Gray's Ice Cream has been a part of my life since I was a little girl. We would often make a stop there on our way back from collecting periwinkles at Sakonnet Point with my grandmother, and Gray's was a highlight of the day! Fast forward to today, and Gray's is still the punctuation mark at the end of a summer day for many people, as evidenced by the crowded parking lot and long lines at the take-out windows in the summertime around 6-7 PM. Voted best ice cream in Rhode Island on several occasions, Gray's strives to keep its legend alive. Located in the heart of Tiverton Four Corners, it still remains a beacon to beachgoers, ball players, boaters and tourists alike. There is a convenience store inside, but the biggest draw, obviously, is the ice cream. The flavor choices are extensive, and the homemade waffle cones and cups are scrumptious and well worth the diet cheating and consequent guilt! I must add, as a long-time patron of the store, that since Gray's sold its recipe rights to a large conglomerate in order to facilitate their volume, the quality of the ice cream has declined over the years. There was a time when all the ice cream was made on-site, and it was even more extraordinary! Don't let that discourage you, however, because Gray's is still one of the best around! The kids will love the big cows grazing in the paddock on the grounds, and there are plenty of shade trees to sit under, while savoring the flavors of Gray's Ice Cream. It's very telling that I now treat my little grandchildren to Gray's when they come to visit, much as my grandmother treated me not so many years ago!
