Now, the big secret that everybody in town knows is if you're looking for ice cream in Newport, you've gotta think of the Pick & Shovel. Actually, it's known as Tim & Doug's Ice Cream, but everybody knows to head over to The Pick and Shovel. This is a gem of an ice cream stand that you must hit if you are in town. It's a walk up window attached to the hardware store but the quality and creations of the ice cream are the best. Chocolate and Vanilla twist with sprinkles? How about Maple Walnut? Open from mid-March to mid-October. Every year.
