The Franklin Fountain is a new ice cream shop that is modeled after a turn of the century soda shop. Now, we all know that I love old timey things, and I even enjoy tacky old timey things, but Franklin Fountain brought old timey to an entirely new and beautiful level. Every last detail of the shop was thought about, right down to the steel icecream buckets. I was staying in the area so I took advantage and came here for ice cream or a soda every single day of my holiday. The owner is also re-opening one of the oldest candy stores in America, so I think I'll have to plan my next trip down there for its opening day. I know I keep going on about this, but I was just really impressed with the Berley families' (the owners) dedication to creating an entire world, it's something that few business people are willing to do. Providing that type of atmosphere feels like a gift from the owner to each individual costumer. If you are ever near Philadelphia I highly recommend that you try it.
