Like the best-tasting Halloween candy, shoes are better when they have blades attached to them. Discover the sweet spoils of sliding footwear with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two skate sessions with rentals at ICE (a $20 value). ICE is an 8,000-square-foot outdoor ice-skating rink located just steps from the ocean in downtown Santa Monica. A 400-square-foot children's rink also rests on the premises, ensuring chilled gliding for patrons of all ages. Downtown Santa Monica and Herbal Essences have adorned the rink with Portraits of Hope, a collaboration that encourages hospitalized children and civic engagement groups to create collections of high-profile public art. A luscious garden is painted under the ice and all around the ice rink, beautifying the space and freaking out leviathan bees that swoop in for nectar only to be greeted by happy children looking for frenetic, icy dance-offs.
Yelpers give ICE at Santa Monica an average of 3.5 stars:
- So, an outdoor ice-skating rink in Los Angeles - AWESOME! I can't just pick up and go to New York to Rockafeller [sic] Center and skate, so, this is the next best thing. Perfect for all groups - young and old, couples and friends. – Aly R.
- …I liked this one a lot. It's a small rink, but in a more cute way (as in a place to bring a date). They even had a small kiddie rink separate from the main rink. – Tyson L.
