Unfortunately, Yosemite travelers will have to find another place for refreshments. The Frost Shop was demolished recently, being bulldozed to the ice cream castle in the sky.

A flashback to the old ice cream shops, Dewar's in Bakersfield has been around for almost a century. Check out the neon lettering and ice cream cone on this Bakersfield institution. Plus, don't forget to stop by if you're in the mood for some ice cream on a warm summer night.
