Going to New York in the winter? Of course, we’re gonna ice skate. It is cheaper than we thought, so don’t rule this out on your vacation. The hardest part is choosing which rink to have fun in. There are 3 rinks in Manhattan:

Rockafeller Center
5th Avenue
New York, New York, 10020

At the Rockafeller Center, you get the view of the biggest Christmas tree in New York City while you ice skate. If you wanna be in a holiday mood, ice skate here! The only downside is that there will be a long line of tourists wanting to skate the Rockafeller rink, so make time for standing in line! It is also crowded on the way to Rockafeller Center, so be patient!

Bryant Park
1065 Avenue of the Americas #2400
New York, New York

There is also a Christmas tree here, and it is in the middle of the city. You can still feel the holidays here! It is the biggest rink out of the three.

Central Park
830 5th Avenue
New York, New York 10019

This is our chosen ice skating rink! You have the view of nature and the city! The buildings are right behind the trees, and the view is beautiful! We went around 9:00 PM to avoid the long lines. It was more fun than I had expected, and I wished to stay longer. Make sure you set ample time for this! You’ll have more fun than you might expect!

What’s your favorite place to do some outdoor ice skating? Or if you haven’t gone, where is your dream spot for outdoor ice skating?
