The best time for winter outdoor activities is when the temperature drop below zero! This is when you bring out your ice skates and hit the rink. If you plan to go on a mini vacation this might help you pick a getaway location .
Hotel Del Coronado
You can call San Diego my first love. I spent a few years in La Jolla for college and was fortunate to discover the beauty of Coronado (a city in SD). Every winter Hotel del Coronado transforms one of its lawn into a giant, outdoor ice rink and the breathtaking part is the view of Pacific Ocean from this location.
Perishing Square Rink
I grew up in this city and I always look forward to Winter to spend time on this ice skating rink. Although I live near 10 mins away from Pasadena Ice Skating Center, the outdoor view of the towering skyscrapers and palm tree is unbeatable.
Leon Black Family Ice Rink
(Beaver Creek, Colorado)
This ice skating rink features a stunning backdrop and lovely ambiance. It open year-round and offers weekly themed skating events. Perfect for family and date nights!
(New York City)
Ever watched Serendipity and Love Story? This location was filmed in the movie! Yes, it's crowded and it's a popular destination for tourists and locals. Give it a chance, maybe you'll find your "soulmate" while gliding through the ice.
McCormick Tribune Ice Rink
(Millennium Park, Chicago)
Just a couple of minutes away from Chicago's Magnificent Mile you'll get to see beautiful city lights while skating. The rink's chiller system also prevent ice from melting in warm weather, ensuring winter-long skating.
Boston Common Frog Pond
During the winter this frog pond transforms into an outdoor ice rink where visitors can rent skates and enjoy a public skating session. They also hold private and group lessons! The best thing about this location is the Pond Cottage's hot cocoa.
What's your favorite ice rink? It doesn't have to be from my list. Feel free to share your favorite ice skating location.
