Whether you live in Philadelphia or are just visiting, be sure to lace up your skates and enjoy the Independence Blue Cross RiverRink at Penn’s Landing until March 4, 2012. The RiverRink is the area’s only Olympic size outdoor skating rink. Open 7 days a week, it offers open skating sessions and group skating lessons, as well as a variety of events such as a Martin Luther King Day celebration and a special Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Skate. There’s also an indoor pavilion complete with a snack bar, game room and other fun activities for you to enjoy.
Located at Columbus Boulevard and Market Street, this yearly tradition is in its 18th season and has become a treasured wintertime activity in Philadelphia for children and adults alike. When you’re ready to warm up, take a short walk over to the OldCity and Society Hill neighborhoods, both of which offer plenty of great restaurants, cafes and boutiques.
