You Can Spend the Night in a Tricked-Out Ice Cream Truck for National Ice Cream Day
By Jake Rossen
For ice cream enthusiasts, hailing an ice cream truck may not be enough. You may have fantasized about commandeering the truck, eating as much of its inventory as possible, and then sleeping off a sugar high by collapsing into a corner.
While not a good idea for drivers, this scenario is suddenly feasible thanks to Booking.com, which is celebrating National Ice Cream Day on July 18 by offering two nights of accommodations in a deluxe National Ice Cream Day Truck. In addition to a bed, the truck features a fully stocked ice cream and toppings bar and a milkshake station.
The truck will be parked in Union Square Park in New York City, where guests can also take a walking tour of Manhattan ice cream shops and stop by the Museum of Ice Cream.
Booking.com will open reservation requests on its ice cream truck listing at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 16, for two evenings on Saturday, July 17 and Sunday, July 18. The cost is nominal—just $7.18 in honor of National Ice Cream Day—but only two parties will be selected.
