Ice Skating in Santa Monica Returns 
November 1, 2019

Every holiday season downtown Santa Monica brings a little ice - and ice skating - to our beachside community, transforming the corner of 5th Street and Arizona Avenue into a winter wonderland. 

Known as ICE at Santa Monica, the 8,000-square-foot outdoor ice skating rink returns on November 1, 2019, and continues through January 20, 2020.

Skating by the beach is designed to offer residents and visitors alike a little taste of winter without the bite. (Who can argue with that?!)

Located just off the 3rd Street Promenade, it's a great place to celebrate the holidays, hang out with friends and family, or perhaps throw a festive seasonal party in a private event cabana. 

Don't Know How to Ice Skate? No Worries!
