Looking for an entertaining way to spend a holiday evening?
Day 201 of 365 Things to do in Pasadena sends you off to Ice Skate!
Here in the City of Roses, we have the luxury of being able to visit the Pasadena Ice Skating Center year round. It’s a great place to meet up for an outing with friends & family. It would also be a fun place for a date too. 😉 Any way you choose to go, ice skating is always going to be a great time!
The Pasadena Ice Skating Center will be open both Christmas Day and New Years Day!
There is also going to be a Winter Skating Camp held from December 20th – December 23rd 2010. Parent & Me group skating classes are held throughout the year, and let’s not forget to mention hockey league try-outs will be coming up too!
There is lots of excitement taking place at the Pasadena Ice Skating Center, be sure to stop by and take in some of the fun!
General admission is $7.00 and it is $3.00 for skate rental. For additional information and to learn about the programs offered please call 626.578.0800.
Does anyone know what’s going on with the plans for renovations? We’ve been hearing about changes for quite some time now.
Here are a few other locations where you’ll be able to find holiday ice skating:
Ice at Santa Monica
For the fourth year in a row, take a break from hectic holiday shopping to show off your skating skills. This rink also stays open until midnight on the weekends, so you can take a spin post-dinner.
Thru Feb 15. 1324 Fifth St., Santa Monica (310-393-8355). $10 (includes skate rental).
Catch an early film at one of the Westwood theaters, then head to the W in Westwood for a post-flick skate and cocktail (try the spiked milk and honey) at their Snowy Snack Bar. It’ll help you stay warm and numb any bruises from falling on the hybrid ice.
Thru Jan 2. 930 Hilgard Ave., Westwood (310-208-8765).
After 13 years, this rink is now a classic, attracting imitators (see LA Live, below). Drop by the weekend of Dec 11-12 for their Winter Holiday festival, or just go on Sunday afternoons to watch people practicing their lutz to live swing bands.
Thru Jan 17. Pershing Square, 532 S. Olive, Downtown (213-847-4970). $6/hr, $2 for skate rental.
LA Live aims to outdo the hallowed Pershing Square as the spot to skate in the city. At 1500 square feet, and surrounded by more than a few worthwhile bars and restaurants, it might prove itself a worthy alternative.
Thru Dec 31. 800 W. Olympic Blvd., Downtown. $12 admission (includes skate rental).
If you’re interested in skating for more than just impressing your snow bunny on a seasonal date, check out the Culver Ice Arena (4545 Sepulveda Blvd., 310-398-5718).
We hope you’ll be able to get out an enjoy some old-fashioned holiday fun!
