## Challenge #413: Ice Cream Road Trip – A Journey of Love

Alteryx

Hi Maveryx,

A solution to last week’s challenge can be found here.

This week, we are diving into a sweet exploration in celebration of Valentine’s Day. With the help of Alteryx Designer, you will discover where to find the most ice cream shop locations across the United States of a beloved franchise.

Imagine this: your friends, who are huge fans of one chain of ice cream shops, are looking for their next big adventure. As their awesome friend (who happens to have great data analytics skills), you offered to help them pick their next destination for Valentine’s Day, focusing on both the density of these ice cream shops and the availability of their favorite flavor.

To solve this challenge, complete the following tasks:

1. Determine which state they should venture to based on the state with the highest number of store locations relative to the population.
2. Create a heat map visualizing the states with the most ice cream shops.
3. Here's a twist: their favorite ice cream is a special flavor of this chain: Buttered Baguette. If your top state choice from Task 1 does not carry this flavor, which state should they visit next to get a scoop of Buttered Baguette?

Have a happy Valentine’s Day!
