Ice skating is the perfect date night with your significant other. While one person falls, the other picks them up. Now that’s true love! Ice skating is also a great reason to get out of the house and do something different. You can share hot cocoa, laugh with one another and capture special moments with photos.
Plus, ice skating is a great excuse to get away from the kids for a few hours and allow yourself to act like a kid at heart! But just in case you want to bring the kids along, I’ve provided information about the different ice skating rinks in Orange County that offer children’s programs.
