What to expect at Slice of Ice in Red Arrow Park

Have you ever been ice skating at Slice of Ice in downtown Milwaukee's Red Arrow Park? The rink is actually bigger than the one at Rockefeller Center in New York City! (That's a fact.) To give you a behind-the-scenes look at what you can expect when you take your kids there, I spent the afternoon at the rink with my seven-year-old and my favorite family photographer, Melissa, from Little X Little Photography.

First, some basic info:

Hours: The rink is open Monday - Thursday from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m, Friday - Saturday from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m, and Sunday from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. From February 1st on, skate rentals begin at 2 p.m.
