There are more than 20 varieties of ice cream that await inside Orange Cycle Creamery, and they’re anything but average. Customers of the young Tarpon Springs sweets shop choose from artisan flavors like pistachio rose water, lavender honey (one of the most popular flavors — for good reason) and root beer float, which are expertly crafted on-site and come in everything from waffle cones to banana splits. Orange Cycle’s cozy digs only add to its appeal for those seeking a little relief from the sunshine. 212 E. Tarpon Ave., Tarpon Springs. 727-935-1260. —Meaghan Habuda
