Ice Cream Factory, which has been serving up sweetness since 1979. There are single-, double- and triple-scoop versions of everything from traditional chocolate and vanilla to deep-dish apple pie. (Yes, as ice cream. On a cone.) ¶ So, walk the show docks until your feet are good and sore, and work up a hearty appetite. Annapolis never disappoints — on boats or bellies.
