Why not celebrate subzero temperatures by going ice skating? Ice skating is fun, inexpensive, and motivates you to stay active even when the weather outside makes you want to curl up under a blanket, never to step foot outside again. Take advantage of the winter season when ice rinks across the city are open to plan a fun-filled skating trip; check out these local offerings!
