Visit These 6 Ice Skating Rinks In Delaware For Some Magical Winter Fun
Are you looking for a great way to kick off the Winter Holiday celebrations this week, after Thanksgiving? Head on over to one of these ice rinks in Delaware with your family or your partner to really get in the winter spirit! Because many of these rinks are also home to hockey teams with varying schedules, I recommend calling them first to double-check their open skate hours. Most of them offer lessons, too, as well as hockey, figure skating, performances, and more.
