It feels like it’s summer all year long in Miami, which makes high temperatures the perfect excuse to indulge in wintery activities like ice skating. And while most skating rinks are open all year long, this quintessential winter activity is perfect for getting into the holiday mood! So get your skates on ASAP and check these out:
The biggest ice skating rink in Miami, Kendall Ice Arena offers a variety of skating lessons, youth hockey leagues, figure skating classes and public skating sessions all year-round. It’s also the perfect place for kiddos to be for the ultimate birthday party!

3. Basement, Miami Beach
Can you get any more Miami than going ice skating inside a nightclub? Perfect for gliding and sliding all year-round, the 2,000-foot-square ice rink at Basement Miami feels a bit like a retro roller blading ring, and we kind of dig it. With its technicolor neon lights and loud music, Basement’s indoor rink puts a lively twist on the wintery activity. Not to mention there’s also a rainbow bowling alley!
Find it at 2901 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33140.

Pines Ice may be a 30 minute drive away from Miami but it’s still worth checking out for its fun public skating sessions under neon lights and adult hockey leagues for players of all levels!
Find it at 12425 Taft St, Pembroke Pines, FL 33028.
5. Boca Ice, Boca Raton
We know, Boca Raton is a much farther drive, but this one is especially cool for its bumper cars… on ice!
