We are now settled into our new home in downtown Columbus and I am ready to take full advantage! I have been out in about about in downtown searching for places to take the kids and have found so many spots to share. The weather has been great, which makes for a fun outdoor activity. We initially went downtown for the Blue Jackets " Winter Park" fun, stationed at Nationwide Arena, offered the full month of February. During the month they offer a outdoor ice skating rink, ice slides, hot cocoa, and roasted marshmallows. We were turned down due to the temperature being too warm causing all the ice to melt outside. So we begin walking around and quickly found that The Chiller "OhioHealth Ice Haus" public indoor ice skating rink!! We have visited the location in Easton, but was surprised to see one tucked just 5 mins away from home. We quickly strapped up our gear and skated for a few hours. Admission runs $5-7 bucks and free for children under 2. Full time laughter watching the girls fall and get back up from the super slippery ice. No food but lots to drink with a "Tim Horton's" connected, it was the perfect early spring getaway. I give this experience a 10 out of 10! Lots of smiles. I would recommend helmets for small children, and jackets for the cool rink!
