Kentucky Places: Downtown Lexington Ice Rink

About a month ago, Lexington got a surprise that I think was quite welcomed - an ice skating rink smack dab in the center of downtown. I drove past it this weekend and it was great seeing families downtown and skating their way through Triangle Park. It brought a completely different, almost idyllic, feeling to downtown Lexington, especially when it's normally barren while UK students are at home for the Holidays.
