Ice Skate in SoCal
Stroll the Santa Monica beach. Stroll the outdoor mall. Enjoy patio dining. Then grab ice skates and enjoy beachside skating, thanks to ICE in Downtown Santa Monica. Located a half-mile from ICE, The Georgian Hotel is the perfect place to stay once you unlace your skates and call it a night.
Each year as Halloween winds down, workers transform the corner of Fifth Street and Arizona Avenue into an 8,000 square-foot ice-skating rink. It’s an unexpected place to spend time with friends and family, go on a date or host a holiday party. Enjoy the ocean breeze as you glide across the rink. Pros and amateurs alike can have hours of fun landing a Triple Lutz, or just keeping their balance on the ice. Get caught up in the beauty of the sun setting over the Pacific and forget the stresses of everyday life; it’s truly a sight to behold.
Make a day of it!
With so much to do within walking distance of the rink, it’s easy to fill a day with Santa Monica splendor. Santa Monica Place is the premier shopping center by the beach. With stores like Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, Nordstrom and Coach, even the most serious shoppers are impressed. Reopening its doors in 2010 as an open-air outdoor mall, Santa Monica Place boasts architectural beauty almost as breathtaking as a ring from Tiffany’s (almost).
After a leisurely day of shopping, grab a bite before heading to ICE. There is no shortage of great restaurants in Santa Monica! If you’re in the mood for a steak, try BOA Steakhouse for a succulent 40 Day Dry Aged New York Strip or delicious Bone-In Rib Eye. If seafood sounds like the better option, try Water Grill.The fish is as fresh as one could expect from a restaurant located a stone’s throw from the Pacific.
