This year seems like it's been tragedy after tragedy. Between the endless shootings, the hate spewed from political campaigns, terrorism, police brutality and sexual assaults, the world just doesn't seem safe anymore. With media constantly covering these tragedies, it's brought our society's spirits down. We aren't as happy as we used to be, with good reason.
Through all the bad news and tragedies this week, it's time to look at something that makes everyone happy: ice cream and FroYo. Not only is ice cream the key to making smiles, it's also extremely delicious and loved by almost everyone. Listed below are some of the top places to visit within Fairfield County. You will definitely walk out with a smile!
