Ice Skating Venues Around Los Angeles

Ice Skating Venues Around Los Angeles, Long Beach and Santa Monica


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season may be a little different out here in Los Angeles from other parts of the country and their winter wonderlands – but it doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the holidays as festively as the rest of the United States!

Nothing rings more true to the holidays than bundling up in a scarf and mittens, grabbing a hot warm drink (preferably hot chocolate), and skating around an ice rink surrounded by twinkling Christmas lights and decked out Christmas trees. While it may be difficult to find a perfect frozen lake or pond in our southern California climate, Los Angeles gets creative and creates perfect ice rinks for you to live out your Holiday day-dream on skates!

Throughout November and December Holiday pop up rinks can be found all over Los Angeles. Some are cozy, small and quaint, while others give all the holiday spectacle of NYC’s Central Park or Rockefeller Center! Here are a few of our favorite rinks to pop by and skate about with your friends and family!

ICE at Santa Monica
Plenty of hot cocoa at this rink to go around and 100% kid friendly. Stop by Santa Monica for some broomball games and skating lessons!

Holiday Ice Rink Pershing Square
Who doesn’t want to skate right in between the skyscrapers of downtown? Make yourself feel like you are tucked in New York – but then enjoy our beautiful weather when you are done! Curling lessons and DJ nights on the schedule!

Chill at the Queen Mary
If you are willing to take a little bit of a drive, this historic ship goes all out for the holidays. Not only can you enjoy an evening of skating – but you will have the chance to have a blast on ice bumper cars, slide down a 100 foot tubing slide, and get your shuffle board on. Did we mention they have an “ice bar” for all the adult “kiddos”?

The Rink in Downtown Burbank
Burbank has the holiday spirit. Another family friendly place to learn to skate and play all sorts of ice games! The rink sits right in front of their City Hall on Third Street and Orange Grove.

Rarely does the temperature drop to a bone-chilling 60 degrees in Los Angeles, but if it does, all of our vehicles used for private L.A. sightseeing tours are in covered SUV’s.  We have no open-top buses or vans, so our guests can control the vehicle temperature, and avoid getting wet during one of our 3 days of annual precipitation.
