Two scoops and a view: Widow’s Walk Ice Creamery and Bicycle Rentals

The Widow’s Walk owner, Brian Fraley, bought the business eight years ago. He initially bought the property to run his real estate business but decided to keep the ice cream shop up and running. Eventually Fraley closed his real estate business, kept the ice cream shop and opened a hair salon. He started renting out bikes to ride along the greenway across from his store, generating extra extra income and giving guests a unique experience.

The Widow’s Walk is located at 415 E Riverside Drive in Clarksville, across from the Ohio River and near the Falls of the Ohio. Fraley said he believes this is the perfect location because he has a lovely view of Louisville and gets to see the sun set over the old railroad bridge across the river. People are also able to take leisurely bike rides across the Ohio River Greenway and can eat the refreshing ice cream he provides.
