Dot's Dario

Dot's is a local favorite, recently featured in Our State Magazine!  This ice cream shop has been around for decades and is located at the intersection of US Hwy. 70 and NC Hwy. 80, between Marion and Old Fort.  Enjoy a sugar cone, waffle cone or ask for a cup, the ice cream tastes great!  This is a seasonal stop, open mid-March through October.
