Such a fun place to go ice skating in the long, Buffalo winters. Last time I went, it was free to go, unless you had to rent skates or a locker! Nestled right in downtown Buffalo, you can take the subway, and there is a stop that will let you off directly at Fountain Plaza.

Great place to ice skate. Can't beat the price (free) with inexpensive rentals available. Great place to take in the sights and sounds of Buffalo. Lots of dining options nearby on Chippewa.

Now that the ice rink at Canalside has opened up, all the crowds have gone there to leave fountain plaza and rotary rink with more space to skate. You can't be the price of free admission and just $3 for rentals. Plus it's close to restaurants and bars.
