The new ice skating rink in downtown Omaha is a delightful addition to the city's winter attractions.
The RiverFront’s Skate Ribbon is in Heartland of America Park. It opened just a few months ago for roller skating and rollerblading.
But last week it was transformed into a winter wonderland, offering residents and visitors a unique ice skating experience.
The best part. It's free.
Skate rentals are available. And you may need to plan ahead. There are 50 slots per half hour. Online reservations are available, but you can also walk up to see if there are openings.
The opening of the rink is perfectly timed for the holiday season, providing a festive and fun outdoor activity for families, couples, and individuals of all ages.
And the rink's location in downtown Omaha makes it an ideal spot for those looking to combine their skating adventure with other activities.
Take a short walk to the Gene Leahy Mall and enjoy the Holiday Lights Festival. Or head over to the Old Market for a bite to eat.
