Quench those clichés about the heat in the Valley with a 90-minute session in Downtown Burbank. Winter sports aren't exactly a pastime in L.A., so little ones—and those of us who look helpless on the ice—can rent Bobby the Seal, an adorable, plastic skating aid. Show up early on Saturdays for skate lessons. You'll find the rink near Burbank City Hall, on the corner of Third Street and Orange Grove Avenue.
