Holiday Bucket List- Outdoor Ice Skating

The Boston Common Frog Pond- Boston, MA

Although Christmas is around the corner, the holiday season doesn't officially end until the first day of our New Years Resolutions.  So there's still time to check off number four on the Holiday Bucket List- Outdoor Ice Skating!


December is the best time of year to dust off the skates that have been sitting in the back of your closet and get outside on the ice. We typically skate outdoors on frozen ponds, but it's a bit early in the year for the ponds to freeze up near the Boston area.  Luckily, there are plenty of outdoor rinks scattered around the Northeast and beyond.  Many of which are decorated with colorful lights making this a perfect evening activity for your holiday season.


We love the iconic Frog Pond in the heart of the Boston Commons. The rink is surrounded by trees streamed in lights, with music playing in the background as you skate.  It is a perfect setting for a fun night with family, friends, or a date night with your significant other.  The general admission is $5, children under 58 inches skate for free.  They also have skate rentals- $10 for adults and $5 for kids.  You can find more info on holiday hours and schedules right on their site!
