Take you children let them go skating while parents shop then all get together for a meal. Various choices. Skating rink is wonderful whether you are skating or just watching and listening to the relaxing music. It is wonderful year round.

Nice to see so many people using the rink. Large enough to satisfy ones desire to skate on real ice.

Only come to skate if you're really not about skating, you just want to say you did it at this location. It's kind of surreal, skating in the middle of all those famous, high-end storefronts, but it's crowded, terribly so, the ice is mediocre at...More
