Ice Skating in Santa Monica Returns 
Nov. 3, 2018 - Jan. 21, 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 is a seasonal event better known as "Ice at Santa Monica."

Skating by the beach is designed to offer residents and visitors alike a little taste of winter without the bite.

The corner location just off the Third Street Promenade, is a great location to celebrate the holidays, hang out with friends and family, or perhaps throw a party in a private event cabana.
