National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden Ice Rink

DC’s version of NYC’s rink at Rockefeller Center sits encircled by monumental sculptures on the National Mall. Ringed with fairy lights, the outdoor venue is Insta-perfect, especially after dark when its commanding neighbor, the National Archives, is illuminated. Admission is good for a two-hour skate; sessions begin on the hour.The rink offers a wide range of lessons to help toddlers, would-be hockey heroes, wobbly adults and experienced jumpers master new skills. Private lessons are also on offer. Warm up post-skate with cocoa, beer, wine and nibbles ranging from pastries to pizzas at the Pavilion Café. Get them while you can—the café will be closed throughout January 2016 for renovations.
