Go Ice-skating in Santa Monica this Holiday Season

Get into the holiday season by ice-skating in Santa Monica. No, that wasn’t a typo, the southern California beach town will once again be hosting their unique outdoor ice-skating event known simply as ICE.


If you’re daydreaming of a white Christmas in Southern California, you won’t need to look any further than ICE at Santa Monica to get your fill of wintry recreation. This , appropriately named, holiday event features an 8,000 square foot skating rink and is  the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit despite the warm California weather.


Whether you want to have a fun night out with friends and family or rent the event cabana for a private occasion, you’re sure to have fun at ICE! This is a great event for kids especially if they’ve only  seen snow and ice on television. So make sure to bundle up and head to Downtown Santa Monica to create some lifelong memories at ICE!


If you’ve never skated before don’t worry, ICE does offer skating lessons. Who knows? Maybe with a little practice ice-skating in Santa Monica will become your new favorite holiday tradition!
