Top Spots for Ice Skating in San Diego
Ice Skating in San Diego During the 2021 Holiday Season
Sun, sand, and ice!? Enjoy a day (or night!) out in San Diego at one of their multiple pop-up ice rinks this holiday! Which one is your favorite!?
Skating on the beach!? Oh yes! Enjoy gorgeous ocean views while whizzing around the ice rink at Hotel del Coronado's pop-up ice rink. And if you are feeling extra fancy, go ahead and reserve a private rink-side lounge at Frost Bite where you can enjoy food, drinks, and your own private fire pit.
Skate sessions last for 90 minutes and it is recommended to purchase ahead of time as there will be an extremely small amount of walk-up tickets available. Be sure to purchase quickly as peak times are selling out fast (like perhaps, sunset!?).
