. . . gone soft in Fort Washington. There's something about summer that says soft-serve ice cream, and there's something about Hovermale's Tastes Best that keeps calling folks back to Prince George's County. What is it? It's right there in the name. A local institution since 1954, this roadside stand serves up a delicious chocolate-and-vanilla swirl cone. Or try the towering "upside down banana split." Either way, summer never tasted better.
Hovermale's classic stand is easy to spot just south of the Capital Beltway.
