December is here and the holiday season kicks into high gear with it! An essential part of every winter season is taking a trip to your nearest ice rink to dazzle the crowds with your fluid grace and athletic leaps and bounds… Or just take it easy and enjoy another great holiday activity this year. We’ve got a few rinks picked out for you in our weekend blog so you can enjoy the fun. Happy skating!
Ice Skating at Discovery Green
1500 McKinney, Houston, TX 77010
Glide around the rink surrounded by the hum of the holidays and the sparkling lights of downtown H-town at ICE powered by Green Mountain Energy. It’s the largest outdoor ice-rink in Texas, coming in at a whopping 7,716 sq. feet! Wheelchairs are welcome to try the ice out and there’s also a separate mini-rink for young ones. Make sure you check the website before you go as weather conditions have a tendency to affect hours of operation since it is outdoors.
Ice at the Galleria

In the heart of the Galleria mall is this long-standing ice rink that it is open year-round. For the holidays, surrounded by decorations and jubilation, it really takes on a special feeling.
