The holidays are finally here, but you wouldn’t know it with our sunny California temps and clear sky. My husband is from Colorado, and when he moved her over ten years ago, that’s all he could talk about. There are no seasons in Southern California. Okay, there are, but not like he’s used too. And when you’re from a place where snow equals the holidays, you’re bound to feel a little blue on an 80 degree Christmas Eve.
But that doesn’t mean we are lacking in holiday cheer. If you’re looking for a spot to bundle up and sip hot cocoa, here are eight places where you can get your ice-skating on in and around the Los Angeles area. Yep, ice rinks in the middle of So Cal.
