Get Your Glide On – Ice Skating In Washington DC

You know you’ve gained a few Thanksgiving dinner pounds when you search for a bigger belt at the Black Friday sales. Now it’s time to take off the lumps before holiday treats start showing up at the office. There’s a fun way to do it right in the heart DC. It’s the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden Ice Rink on the National Mall. This is a great place for a date or a family outing. There’s a café next to the rink so you can get a cup of hot chocolate to warm up your hands.

Sessions begin on the hour. Lockers are available for only fifty cents.
