I love to travel and showcase amusement parks, museums and resorts but sometimes, it feels good to be a kid again. During my recent visit to Tallahassee, I felt like a kid again at Lofty Pursuits. Lofty Pursuits is not your typical Tallahassee ice cream parlor. We’re talking ice cream, Old Fashion Victorian candy and toys.
The extensive menu at Lofty Pursuits includes your typical ice cream fountain favorites including 52 varieties of sundaes. Why? Because there are 52 Sunday in the year! I had to opportunity to try several customer favorites at Lofty Pursuits and soon realized it’s more than just ice cream.
Lofty Pursuits features signature items and creates a fun, energetic atmosphere with their old fashion soda jerks who can be seen making old fashion Victorian candy right from your parlor stool. It’s not just about ice cream, it’s the experience.
Pictured above you can see a live demo of hard candy being made by a Lofty Pursuits employee. The “Public Displays of Confection” can be purchased at their store location or if you’re not local, you can purchase a variety on their website.
Does your ice parlor have a marching band or yo-yo collection? You can find the two time award winning marching band Lofty Pursuits Marching Band can be found sharing their love for music in various parades and other events. It’s a fun way the band members give back to the community and practice their craft in Tallahassee.
Lofty Pursuits is also home to a large selection of American made toys. Don’t leave without check outing out the Haiku vending machine. It’s the best place to find poetry for a quarter! Don’t forget to check out the 1920’s rotary payphone (as seen in the 1st picture) that has been rewired to play special recordings for various famous cinematic phone numbers.
