With chilly weather and the holiday season in full effect, what's better than an ice skating adventure Downtown LA? Although the weather in Southern California may not get down to below freezing, there are still a few options for outdoor skating so, for Angelenos in search of some frosty fun, we've done the some of the heavy lifting for you. Here are two DTLA spots you need to know about:
The Winter Ice Skating Rink at Pershing Square
In its 16th season, the ice rink at Pershing Square is the perfect way to get into the winter spirit. Surrounded by trees and skyscrapers, you can pretend you live in a cold climate for just a moment. If you want to take your ice skating adventure to the next level, join one of the many broom-ball tournaments which will be taking place here through January! All made possible by the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, general admission is $8 and skate rentals are $2. Enjoy ice skating at Pershing Square through January 20, 2014.
Located at 532 S. Olive St.
LA Kings Holiday Ice Rink at LA Live
If ice skating isn't your thing, it would still be worth it to visit the ice rink at LA Live as it surrounds a beautiful, LED lit, 66-foot Christmas tree. The rink will be open until December 31, 2013 and general admission (including skate rental) is $13. A discounted rate of $6 is available for military, senior citizens and children under five.
Located at 800 W. Olympic Blvd.
So get bundled up, head to one of these spots, and have some fun on the ice this winter season!
