If you’re looking for some cool and exciting winter activities in the Omaha area, then you’re in for a treat. Let me introduce you to the newest gem in town – the Skate Ribbon.
Located along The Riverfront at Omaha’s Heartland of America Park, this place is a blast.
In the warmer months, you can rollerblade and skate, and when it gets cold you can ice skate in downtown Omaha.
It’s not just a regular skating rink. It’s an experience. Imagine gliding along the ribbon with the cityscape as your backdrop, the music pumping in the background, and the twinkling stars above you.
It’s like something out of a movie, and the best part?
It’s absolutely free to use!
If you don’t have your own skates, don’t worry. You can easily rent them for a small fee and be on your way to enjoying this fantastic winter tradition.
You may need a reservation, so check out The Riverfront website for availability and hours.
And when you’re done skating, there’s a whole lot more to explore downtown. From the Gene Leahy Mall, Kiewit Luminarium, and also the new Farnam Pier with its breathtaking views of the Missouri River.
And let’s not forget the annual Holiday Lights Festival at the Gene Leahy Mall.
And for those looking for some educational and family-friendly fun, the Kiewit Luminarium and Lewis and Clark Landing are just a short walk from the Skate Ribbon.
Trust me, there’s no shortage of things to do in Omaha this winter.
