San Antonio is known for its hot summers. While we may not yet be in the thick of the summer heat, why delay the gratification of a refreshing ice cream cone? Just like Sapphire Apartments is home to the best apartments in San Antonio, the Alamo City is home to countless ice cream shops, which are well worth a visit this season. Here are just a few of our favorites.
