There's a lot to be excited about at Desert View Trading Post & Ice Cream. Desert View Ice Cream is conveniently located inside the Desert View Trading Post, featuring sweet treats and coffee drinks. We even make fudge from scratch! What a perfect way to stay energized and hydrated during a long day of sightseeing!
