The most important day of Summer is quickly approaching: National Ice Cream Day, of course, which is Sunday, July 16. It would be an injustice not to celebrate it (we'll take any and all excuses to eat an extra scoop), so we've rounded up all the best deals for free and discounted ice cream across the nation. Pick your favorite spot, grab your ice cream squad, and make the most out of the best Sunday ever!
