It's beginning to feel a lot like...winter! On Monday, October 14, the iconic Rink at Rockfeller Center will open for the first time this season (Olympic medalist Elvis Stojko and the Rockettes will be on hand at 10am for the official debut).

RECOMMENDED: New skating rink to open at World Financial Center in November

As always, expect lines to be long on weekends. Your family's best bet: Show up first thing in the morning. The rink, which will be open through April 2014, also offers special First Skate packages (7am–8am) from November 22 through January 6, 2014.

Next up for the Rockefeller Center area: The Rock Center tree lighting on December 4.
