Ice Skating! Local Rinks set up for the Holidays in the Los Angeles Area

I used to do a lot of roller skating as a kid, so the first time I went ice skating it was just like roller skating. The only difference is when you fall it's cold and if you stay down too long your butt gets wet. If you want to share the joy of ice skating with the kids here are a few temporary ice skating rinks set up nearby for the holidays. 

The closest is in Pershing Square, Downtown LA. The cost is $8 for one hour of skating including rental. The rink is up until January 17. For details about skating downtown, click here.

The city of La Mirada has a rink that is up until February 21. Prices range from $6 for a 30 minute sesssion to $79 for a premium pass, all prices include skate rental. La Mirada also offers 30 minute skating lessons. For more details click here.

The November/December issue of AAA magazine listed a few more skating rinks including one in Irvine, Santa Monica, Riverside, and a couple in San Diego. To see the AAA article, click here.

TIP: If you have young kids, for the first time make sure you have a child to adult ratio of 1:1. The little ones will need a lot of hand holding!
