You Can Pretend It’s Winter When You Go Skating At The Ice Palace In Hawaii
While we love that the Hawaiian Islands experience near-perfect weather all year long, sometimes you want to pretend we have actual seasons. Of course, you can visit the summits of Mount Haleakala and Mauna Kea — which both receive occasional snowfall — but there’s an easier way if you live on the island of Oahu. We may not have chilly mountain summits, but we do have an ice skating rink where it’s always winter — sort of.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
