It’s not truly the winter until you’ve made a trip to the ice rink!
Whether you’re a beginner or an ice skating pro, there’s nothing quite like spending the afternoon on a pair of ice skates with the family to signal that winter has arrived. Here are some of our favorite places in the Western New York area for ice-skating this season!
Step Out Buffalo has laid out the best spots in the Buffalo area for ice-skating. There are both indoor and outdoor options, so a too-cold or too-snowy day won’t keep you out of your skates!
For a true wintry experience, head to The Ice at Canalside, located in downtown Buffalo. This outdoor rink in the surging canal district is the perfect spot for skating, especially if there’s snow in the forecast. There are also other fun winter events available, too, like ice bikes, curling, pond hockey and more. This is a great spot to spend the day with the family!
Rotary Rink, also located downtown, is another good option for outdoor skating. With the city lights illuminating the skyline, you’ll feel like you’re in the center of everything. Stop by some of Buffalo’s best restaurants and shops after your skate.
If the weather’s too bad to skate outside but you still want to hit the ice, check out The Northtown Center in Amherst. This indoor rink is perfect for first-time skaters, and skate rentals are only $3 per pair for town residents.
For an indoor option that’s also located in Downtown Buffalo, head to the HarborCenter. This is a great destination for you and the family, with lots of activities to do including ice-skate. Skate rentals are also $3, and children younger than 7 can participate in open skating for just $1.25.
