Gliding across the ice

Ice skating is one of the most popular excuses for getting outside during the winter. There’s something special about gliding over the frozen surface, even if you do so in a clumsy way. Thankfully, popular rinks draw plenty of novices, so you’ll never be the only one nursing a bruised tailbone (or a bruised ego).

If you live in a cold weather city, then you have your choice of skating venues, but these iconic outdoor rinks are special, regardless of where you live. Perhaps they’ll inspire you to lace up your skates! (Text: Josh Lew)
