When Joe and I were planning our big Route 66 trip for last autumn, we had intentions to stay at the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook, AZ because, well, could you really see us NOT staying at a wigwam motel if we had the opportunity?

The Museum of Ice cream is a pop up that has been taking Instagram by storm since mid-2016 (so far about 100,000 posts have included the hashtag #MuseumOfIceCream). An interactive (hello, 5 sense INCLUDING taste!) exhibit that celebrates all that is cold, sweet and creamy, it’s opened in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco (oftentimes with frequent extensions of how long it stays open – as of this writing, Los Angeles will stay open into this month and San Francisco will now remain open until February 2018) and the newest installation is opening next week!
