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.
Alex and Ani City Center
At 14,000 square feet, the Alex and Ani City Center dwarfs the famed ice rink at New York City's Rockefeller Center and provides visitors with plenty of room to ice skate for hours. Located in Kennedy Plaza, skaters can enjoy a day of gliding against a backdrop of Providence landmarks during open skate sessions. After graceful spins across the ice, guests can indulge in cocoa, coffee, and delicious eats from downtown Providence's nearby local haunts. The rink also offers birthday party packages with the use of a heated pavilion space, group reservations for business and social outings, and full-ice private event rentals.
