What are the five cities you feel has the highest quality of local Gelato/Ice Cream shops?

* Note: Do not mention yogurt and only speak of local shops, not chains.

Not sure about quality rankings, but I have read in the past that Boston consumes more ice cream per capita than any other major city. And as a prime mover on the consumption front, I'd say part of the reason is that we have some damn good ice cream.

And we have Ron's, which was ranked third best in the world by National Geographic.

Not really sure but I would think the cities with the best gelato are the ones with large Italian populations. Perhaps Philly and NYC.

Paciugo Gelato from Dallas is sooooo good!
I think they have expanded to other cities now.
Owners are from Italy and know how to do it right!

Usually I think from Dallas and snicker... But Paciugo is fairly awesome. But, it is still a chain and does not meet the OP's requirements.

I would guess places with a robust dairy industry. Western New York State, Vermont, Wisconsin, etc. But I haven't tested this guess well enough. Need... more... research!!!
