The new Discover Schenectady River Rink at Mohawk Harbor is a big hit.
It gives locals and visitors an option for family fun and helps local restaurants and businesses.
There are several themed nights, like Heroes Night on Tuesday which gives 50% off for healthcare heroes, first responders, veterans and their families.
Wednesdays are Family Nights with 20% off as families skate with costumed characters provided by the Costumer.
Thursday is Buy One, Get One skating, for couples.
Druthers, Shaker & Vine, and Rivers Casino are all within walking distance and hotel packages are available at the Landing Hotel and Courtyard Marriott.
Discover Schenectady’s Todd Garofano said, “People feel safer in outdoor settings. This new experience extends our tourist season, which supports our local economy and protects jobs.”
