LA doesn't typically seem like much of a winter wonderland, until, that is, you create an ice skating rink right in the midst of Downtown skyscrapers and LA icons. Come glide and pretend there's snow on the ground at Pershing Square's outdoor holiday skating rink—one of the biggest in the city. Look out for special events throughout the season, like curling lessons, a silent disco skate and DJ nights.

It's nice to have a holiday event that is fun and festive at night in an urban space that otherwise feels dated in a sad way the rest of the year. Looking forward to the revamp of Pershing Square in (hopefully) the near future!
This is a really great ice skating rink, especially as it's grown larger in recent years. It's cheaper than some of the other rinks in the city and the views of Downtown are just incredible from Pershing Square—perhaps the only positive thing about the otherwise bleak park. It can get very crowded on weekends, though, and the quality of the ice can take a hit because of it. Definitely hold out until the 80-degree days have passed.
