During the sweltering summer months, ice skating in South Florida serves as a refreshing escape from the heat. In the wintertime, a skate session can temporarily transport you to a place that at least somewhat resembles the traditional hallmarks of the season. And when you leave the rink behind, you don’t have to worry about scraping ice from your windshield or whether you’re wearing enough layers. Here are seven South Florida venues where you can experience this sweet escape.
Basement offers a unique opportunity to combine traditional nightlife with ice skating. Check out the Miami Beach night club’s calendar of events to find a band or DJ you like, and to see whether the rink will be open or closed during the show. Also home to a bowling alley, Basement is the only place we know where you can bowl, ice skate, and get down on the dance floor without changing venues.
The official practice facility of the Florida Panthers, the IceDen is one of Broward County’s most popular places to ice skate.
