Duration: 4-5 hours

Spend your afternoon gliding on ice hand-in-hand with your loved one. Experience the magic of the city as you navigate the busy streets to get to the bustling Pioneer Square.

  • The date begins with a stroll through the busy city streets. As you approach Pioneer Square, the historic buildings become even more impressive. Once you reach the outdoor rink, you lace up your skates, help each other to remain steady on the ice and begin your fun-filled skating adventure.
  • You both could start out holding onto the side rails but soon, you'll find the courage to venture out onto the ice, holding onto each other as you glide across. Experienced skaters might show off their skills while novices might enjoy the experience of learning something new together. After a few hours, you take a break to enjoy hot cocoa or coffee nearby, reminiscing about the fun moments of the day.
  • As the sun begins to set, the city lights begin to twinkle, offering a beautiful backdrop to finish off your ice-skating date. The day ends on a high note with a cozy dinner at a local restaurant nearby, talking and laughing about the day's escapades.

Preparation steps:

  • Before the date, make sure to check the opening hours and availability of the ice rink. If neither of you have your own skates, check if the venue offers rental services. Be alert of the weather forecast, wear comfortable but warm clothes.
  • Acquaint yourself with the basics of ice-skating if you've never tried it before. Watching online tutorials or reading safety tips can give you a confidence boost. Remember, it's not about mastering the activity, it's about enjoying the moment together.
  • Don't forget to pack gloves, scarves, and hats for additional warmth. If you have sensitive skin, lip balm and a small tube of hand cream can be a lifesaver in cold weather. Remember to bring your camera or make sure your phone is fully charged for capturing those unforgettable moments.

Some tips:

  • Start the date with a light meal; you don't want to feel too heavy while ice skating. Also, make sure both of you get plenty of rest the night before the date. Skating requires focus and energy, especially for beginners.
  • If you're not confident in your ice-skating abilities, don't be afraid to ask for help or hire an instructor for a quick lesson. The important thing is that you're spending the time together and having fun, not how good you are at ice skating.
  • Warm each other up with some hot chocolate or coffee afterwards. Not only will this provide a lovely finish to your day out on the ice, but you'll also enjoy each other's company in a different setting. Embrace the time you have together and end the day on a warm, cozy note.
