From our content partner, Red Tricycle:

As the story goes, the first float was made out of necessity: a very wise man decided to use ice cream to cool his drink when he ran out of ice cubes back in 1874. Now, though, it’s pure summertime fun at its very simplest. Sure, you can make it at home, but why bother when these six spots make root beer floats so delightfully delicious and accessible? Throw in some retro decorations and an old school vibe and you’ve got yourself a sweet summertime outing.
