You’d be surprised to know that there are actually quite a few outdoor ice skating rinks right here in the metro Phoenix area. Nothing screams it’s the holidays like skating around on some ice outside. It’s a different experience skating outdoors versus indoors at a location such as Polar Ice and the only way to know the difference is just by doing it.
