We All Scream for Ice Cream

Spring in Missouri is still a little on the chilly side, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting the scoop on a Columbia institution, Sparky’s Homemade Ice Cream! Located less than ten minutes from our Columbia hotel, Sparky’s is known for two things: First is its incredibly eclectic menu of ice cream flavors, including lavender honey, maple sea salt, pancakes, cucumber melon and much, much more! The second thing is the quirky and strange art that adorns the walls, like its own tiny museum of terrible paintings, so folks can enjoy their ice cream while checking out the odd and humorous paintings. A must-visit for locals and visitors alike, don’t wait for the weather to warm up before grabbing a cone and enjoying some homemade goodness. 

Address: 21 South 9th Street, Columbia
