opens in new window

Imagine celebrating National Ice Cream Day on July 18, not only by eating a scoop or two but by staying somewhere that looks really sweet. It would involve spending the night inside an ice cream truck.

Booking.com is making such an overnight stay possible. The booking website is offering two separate stays within an ice cream truck parked in New York City’s Union Square during the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, July 17 and 18.

The lucky people who obtain these bookings will sleep inside a secured and fully-functioning ice cream truck. (Don’t worry; the ice cream is all for them. And the truck will remain off-duty.)
