Oh Christmas Bells, Oh Christmas bells…


Snow on Central Park - New York

  • Snow on Central Park - New York
  • Christmas on the beach

Joy! Christmas is on its way (quiet all you grinches out there) and if you’re lucky enough to be in NYC this winter season then that means ice skating!

We’ve all seen those romantic movies with the happy-ever-after couple sluicing their way around the Rockefeller Center rink, but what of the other winter fun choices?

There are four mainstream ones you can choose from.

The Pond at Bryant Park. It’s free to skate in Bryant Park. The Pond at Bryant Park is a 170′ x 100′ state-of-the-art skating rink. Ice skate rentals are $13 and skating lessons are also available. Nearby, you can stop to enjoy a hot toddy overlooking the rink at Celsius. (You’ll need the break!)

Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers. The Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers offers ice skating in New York City year-round. The rink welcomes skaters of all ages and ability levels for general skating, figure skating, hockey training and league play, and more.

Wollman Rink in Central Park. There’s nothing more picturesque than skating in Central Park. The Trump Wollman Rink is located near the east side of the Park, just steps away from the Central Park Zoo and The Plaza Hotel. The rink offers ice hockey, a skating school, and party facilities.

And of course… Rockefeller Center. Ice skating at Rockefeller Center is an essential New York City winter experience. Since 1936, millions of New Yorkers have skated here in the shadow of the city’s most famous Christmas tree. Admission prices vary by time of year, day of the week, and time of day. During peak times, it will cost you $19 per adult and $12.50 per child. A fun tip: If you have kids or younger family members – take them to breakfast at Rockefeller Center. Makes them happy and includes skating without the wait, AND you get to watch people skate right next to you through the window!

Will you be in NYC for New Year’s Eve… here’s what to expect!
