I used to live in Boston - where there are tons of ice-cream places that make their own ice cream...now, I go to The Dairy Godmother in Del Ray for their wonderful sorbets and custard (last week, had a Thai ice coffee sorbet there that was AWESOME!).
Any other local joints you can recommend? I've been to the one in Old Town and didn't like it much...
Lazy Sundae just off of Route 7 in Falls Church. Used to be in Clarendon, but now only sends their truck there.
Max's in Washington DC on Wisconsin Ave: this was a chowhound recommendation, I think from Steve.
York Castle in Silver Spring on Georgia Ave: They have a large tropical flavor selection. I think the ownership is Jamaican.
Woody's in Fairfax: This is a local soft serve stand with seasonal hours and is closed Sundays. Prices are reasonable and dogs eat free.
Thelma's in Great Falls. Sadly, she died a few years back, but I hear it's still in business in the same old gas station/general store from the 30's.
