Ice is nothing more than water that won't let people swim in it. Teach stubborn liquid a lesson with today's Groupon: for $10, you get ice skating admission and skate rental for two at Bank of America City Center (a $20 value).
Bank of America City Center facilitates friction-free travel across 14,000 square feet of professionally maintained outdoor ice. At twice the size of New York City's famed Rockefeller Plaza ice rink, the Bank of America City Center provides ample room for ice dancing duos to show off their skills in moonlit spotlights, uninhibited by crowds or speed skating Rockettes. City landmarks surround the arctic arena, providing skaters with a warming view of the Biltmore Hotel and City Hall against the soft glow of winter skies. Open hours allow visitors to glide until March 17 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Though Bank of America City Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still provides the best deal available.
The Providence Rink at the Bank of America City Center
At 14,000 square feet, the Bank of America City Center dwarfs the famed ice rink at New York City's Rockefeller Center and provides visitors with plenty of room to skate for hours. All winter long, the rink hosts public sessions as well as Learn to Skate classes for beginners and drop-in refresher classes for adults. Located in Kennedy Plaza, skaters can enjoy a day of gliding against a backdrop of Providence landmarks during open skate sessions, group skating and birthday parties. After graceful spins across the ice, guests can indulge in cocoa, coffee, and delicious eats from downtown Providence's nearby local haunts.
