Maple View Ice Cream Stores (Two of them)
Update: The Carrboro shop has closed. News reports say that the new owner of the store front may still be selling the ice cream, though, so stay tuned for details.
We have mentioned Maple View Farms as a fun little ride and destinaton to get ice cream. Yet in that post I also wrote that you can get the same ice cream in downtown Carrboro. It turns out that you can also get the same ice cream in Hillsborough!
I thought we would include these 2 shops as you plan your end of summer activities.
The 2 places are very similar. There is a selection of Maple View Farms ice creams (Carolina Crunch, yum!), select dairy products such as milk, and other items that they may sell (the one in Hillsborough had fresh, organic, local beef for sale when we went).
The Carrboro shop is located on Weaver Street, directly across from Weaver Street Market. Parking can be kind of difficult, but use street parking and the lot across the street near Fleet Feet. There is also the Carr Mill Mall lot near the Harris Teeter, down Greensboro. Wherever you park, you can certainly enjoy your cone. There are a few tables inside, but it can get crowded in there. Outside there are rocking chairs (which are fantastic if you can nab one), and you can always carry your desserts over to the Weaver Street Lawn.
The Hillsborough shop is a little hard to find, located in a shopping center at the intersection of 86 & 85. But if you find the Walmart, you should be able to find it. Plenty of parking since this is in a shopping plaza. There was a lot of indoor searing here, but no outdoor seating at all. This would pair nicely with a trip to Hillsborough to see the HOST, walk Poet's Walk, or hit the Triangle SportsPlex.
Maple View tends to close up shop, so to speak, in the winter time.
