Fodor's Expert Review Mono Cone
Get soft-serve ice cream, burgers, and fries at this hopping shack in the middle of Lee Vining, but be prepared to do what's rare in these uncrowded parts: wait in line. There's some indoor seating, but unless the clouds are leaking, take your food to nearby (and quiet) Hess Park, whose views of Mono Lake make it one of the best picnic spots in eastern California. The park has a playground and tennis court, too.
