At 11,800-square-feet, Georgetown’s riverside venue is the largest of DC’s three outdoor rinks. It’s a great place to play hooky during the work week; lines for ice time and skate rentals get long on weekends, but the views of the Potomac River, Kennedy Center and Roosevelt Island are worth the wait. There’s an army of penguin-shaped stabilizers for little rookies to push, keeping them upright as they learn to skate. Bars line the ice on three sides so count on a post-session drink.
