Ice-Skating around Los Angeles at W Hotel and Downtown on Ice…
Normally Palm Trees and suntans come to mind – even in Los Angeles in the winter. But this year, there are more options to get into the winter pastime of ice-skating – from the W hotel in Westwood to downtown Los Angeles to Santa Monica.
The W Hotel in Westwood’s Wet Bar is changed into a winter wonderland with the creation of an ice-skating rink. Â You can have s’mores, a hot toddy and enjoy some ice fun with friends and family in a plush environment the hotel calls CHILL, their outdoor hybrid ice skating rink. The hotel has lots of room/ice skating specials, but you can skate for $10 and hour, rental included and no advance reservations are required. Â If you have always wanted to ice skate between Bel Air and Beverly Hills, your wish has been granted. Â This is what it normally looks like:
Heading downtown, L.A. Live had first skate last Thursday for it’s outdoor rink, which will be open to the public until December 31. Â General admission cost is $10 and includes skate rental. Â The rink can fit 200 people at a time, and is 70 feet by 50 feet. Â Click here to find out location, parking and hours of operation.
Pershing Square downtown also has an outdoor rink, and on December 12 and 13 there is Downtown on Ice, a holiday event from 11am til 6pm that is family focused. Admission is $6 and skate rental is $2 so it’s an inexpensive way to get some holiday cheer!
Santa Monica and Culver City also have skating rinks, so get out and hit the ice for some holiday cheer. Â There are still palm trees all around and soon enough it will be warm again.
