New York, NY

We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

The Coolest Ice Skating Rinks in NYC

Nicole Rubin

Is there any more quintessential winter activity than ice skating with the kiddos? So lace up those skates, but consider skipping the crowds at Rockefeller Center. We've rounded up four alternative places to hit the ice in NYC.

Winter Village at Bryant Park

Head to Midtown's Bryant Park for some admission-free time on the ice. Centrally located but not as mobbed as Rock Center, there's plenty of space to show off that cool spin you've been working on.

The Standard Ice Rink

The Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District has an adorable ice rink in the plaza throughout the chilly months. Bonus: grab a hot chocolate at their cafe, or better yet a mug at their biergarten. 

The Rink at Brookfield Place

Mix high-end shopping with your skating at Brookfield Place, overlooking the Hudson River. Located right outside the shiny new mall, this rink has killer views and a gourmet food court after you've worked up an appetite.

Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers

When the weather outside if frightful (and when isn't it?), scurry to the indoor Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers, which offers lessons as well as hosts birthday parties. Afterwards, score some strikes at the bowling alley or shoot 'em up in laser tag.
