My husband and I had hoped to head down 71 to Fountain Square on Saturday to introduce our three kids to ice skating, Cincy-style. We never made it downtown on Saturday; our oldest is getting over the croup and we didn’t want her getting any sicker.
I was a little bummed; not having grown up in Cincinnati, I assumed that the US Bank Ice Rink was only open for the holiday season. It seemed we would miss out on the frozen fun for another year.
But happily, I was wrong.
The US Bank Ice Rink on Fountain Square is open now through February 21, 2010, and has hours all week long if you’re looking for a good reason to play hooky. On Saturday nights in January and February show up for DJ Skates from 6 pm – 10 pm and skate like it’s 1989 with all the fun music of then and now.
Admission is $2.50 each; skate rental is $2.50 as well; bring cash or your credit card and you’re good to go!
