If you're in the OC and dreaming of a white Christmas, Holiday on Ice at the Irvine Spectrum Center is your answer. Located in Giant Wheel Court by Nordstrom and Macy's, this tented rink offers the perfect time out from shopping. When renting skates, be sure to request a free helmet—recommended for adults and children alike. Following each 75min skating session, the rink is closed for resurfacing, so you'll never have to skate on slush. Head to the adjacent ferris wheel during the 15 minutes the rink is closed for nonstop fun. Check the website for the full schedule and details.
