Celebrate National Ice Cream Day in L.A.

L.A.'s infamous June gloom has finally burned off, and we think there's no better way to beat the heat than with some ice cream. Of course Angelenos have mastered the art of ice cream -- in a city where it's always the season for a frozen treat, good froyo, gelato, and ice cream are essential. In honor of National Ice Cream Day, here's a gallery of some of the best L.A. has to offer.
