During a holiday season unlike any other, it’s important to hold onto the little things. This year we rounded up four different outdoor ice skating rinks for your family’s enjoyment.
Fifty West Brewing Company
From cycling to sand volleyball to running clubs to kayaking, Fifty West Brewery Company offers activities for everyone to enjoy. This winter, the brewery converted a portion of its sand volleyball courts into an ice skating rink. Visit the beer garden area for craft beers and burgers, and now hot coco for the kids. For $10 a person, the kids can skate on the ice rink for 60 minutes while you watch and cuddle up around one of the six fire pits or hangout under the heated and ventilated tents. Pricing include skate rentals.
