California may not be known for cold weather - especially LA - but that doesn't mean your family can't have some fun on ice during this winter! We've chosen 3 fun and family friendly ice skating rinks that would be delightful for anyone in the LA area.
LA Kings Valley Ice Center, Los Angeles: A favorite of LA Kings’ ice hockey fans and casual skaters alike, the LA Kings Valley Ice Center rink is known for its accommodating staff and family friendly vibe. Ice hockey, figure skating, and 101 classes offered along with how-to's on the lost art of curling! If your family still has energy after a few spins around ice, then be sure to check out some of LA’s great parks!
Pershing Square Holiday Ice Skating Rink gives skaters the unique opportunity to skate in downtown Los Angeles while surrounded by LA's unique skyline. Though this skating season is short (the rink closes up shop on January 16th), Pershing Square offers a ton of fun activities and events all year round.
Downtown Santa Monica might be the best 360 option for a family: in addition to their awesome ICE at DTSM skating rink, they also have a packed events calendar, tons of shopping options, restaurants to choose from, and more! By the way, their rink is not too shabby either: they offer fun outdoor ice skating lessons from a number of professional skaters.
