We drove out to this gem and was surprised to see that they were offering $1 ice cream for National Ice Cream day. We also checked out the museum area and fished in the pond. A lovely day trip place in Ohio.

My family had a great time at the Velvet headquarters. The ice cream was fabulous, and there were flavors available that I'd never seen - I tried the elephant ear, which had actual chunks of elephant ear in it, and it was delicious! They have...More

I am sure dogs would be allowed on the outside in the picnic area. They would be off limits for the tour or the restaurant/gift shop.
