Enough of the "good old days," already:  while Kimball Farm in Westford, Mass., started its ice cream cream stand in 1939, its current presence has to be better than back in the day.

There's simply more to do than just eating ice cream. Kimball Farm now features an outdoor seafood and grill dining area (featuring lobster rolls, burgers and fried seafood), two state-of-the-art mini golf courses, a country store with cafe (with baked goods and tea), batting ranges, arcades, bumper boats, a driving range, pitch and putt, and an animal display area.

In someone else's hands, this expansion might have turned out to be simply obnoxious and tacky, but Kimball Farm has seamlessly combined all of these fun elements into a wonderful, appealing family destination. Perhaps what makes the overall experience nice is that the Kimball Farm staff is pleasant and professional, making the visit seem like a supersized family outing.

The layout is quite welcoming, too, with tree shaded path ways,  a pavillion and ambiant white lights at the dining area, and a covered bridge, a rustic a lodge-like building and waterfalls at the mini golf course and bumper boats area.

Of course, the marvelous homemade ice cream remains with such amazing flavors like gingersnap molasses, malted milkball, German chocolate fudge, cherry vanilla chip, chocolate raspberry swirl and orange pineapple. My all time favorite is the black raspberry. Ice cream doesn't get more creamier and, ultimately, more delicious than this.

I have never met anyone that didn't like Kimball Farm, and with good reason: delicious homemade ice cream, shopping, dining and myriad fun and games under one attractive roof will bring a smile to anyone's face!
