California Christmas


California offers some natural mountain environments lending themselves to winter ice skating rinks. But then there's the beach. It's warm and probably hasn't seen a frost for years.


So, how are you going to ice skate at the beach? There are numerous ice skating rinks in California during the winter months and holidays. Portable ice rinks have developed the refrigeration systems and know how to turn our beaches into palm tree plazas where you can ice skate in your shorts and tees. What we look for in posting these are outdoor ice skating rinks in California.

SAN DIEGO - Fantasy on Ice. In the heart of downtown San Diego's Horton Plaza there's an outdoor ice rink for guests to enjoy. The beauty of this event is that it is designed to raise money for Children's Hospital.  San Diego epitomizes the year-round sun and fun city next to the Mexican border. So it's no surprise that the ice skating in this warmest of California beach cities often includes Hawaiian shirts and shorts since it's also a year-round vacation destination, as well.
