Where to Find Outdoor Ice-Skating in Los Angeles

Southern California is known for sun, sand, and surf, but something magical is happening in Los Angeles- Ice Skating rinks are popping up all over the city!

Holiday Ice Rink Pershing Square

Each year, Pershing Square hosts Downtown on Ice- a massive outdoor ice-skating rink set amidst the towering skyscrapers of Downtown L.A. The Pershing Square rink has been a seasonal LA landmark for the last 18 years.

Special events include youth programs, curling lessons, a silent disco skate, concerts, and DJ nights. Underground parking is available, or you can take the Metro!
