As if you needed it, here’s another reason to come to Monroeville, Alabama, home of Harper Lee’s novel TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, and Truman Capote’s summer home. OK, to be honest, the site where Truman used to live is just a foundation now, and a marker. But at Miss Nelle’s old homesite you’ll find Mel’s Dairy (see very unassuming photo below). Would you believe an 82 cent soft serve ice cream? Believe it! Come and see it (and taste it) for yourself. It was upper 90’s and it took some (not much) effort to make sure we ate the ice cream fast enough that it wouldn’t melt. Yum! Very cooling. And as we walked back to the courthouse, that you can see from Mel’s, and the courthouse clock struck the hour . . . chills.
