Most people don’t look for outdoor activities during the cold winter months, but ice skating is a winter tradition around the holidays that gets families out of the house. Check out these outdoor Long Island ice skating rings for a fun day out on the town.
Tanger Outlets Deer Park: Open until the beginning of March, Tanger Outlets is in close proximity to plenty of stores and restaurants for families who want to get dinner after a day on the ice.
Christopher Morley Park: This rink’s been around for 1966, so it’s a tradition for many Long Island residents to stop by and enjoy skating with their families. Open fires with hot cocoa just make the experience even better.
Syossett-Woodbury Community Park: Located just off all major highways and several main roads, Syossett-Woodbury offers a rink in the midst of a picturesque park.
Bayville Winter Wonderland: Ice skating isn’t all this location offers – stop by for a train ride, fun house, visits with Santa, and more.
The Rinx at Harborfront Park: Since this rink is right on the edge of Port Jeff harbor, you can ice skate with a stunning ocean view. Port Jefferson village is within walking distance for a charming day on the town.
There are indoors Long Island ice skating rinks too if the weather just gets way too cold, but why not try to get out of the house and enjoy the snow while it lasts?
