The weather is turning colder in New England, and that means it’s time for a favorite winter activity: Ice skating outside!
Outdoor ice skating is a fun winter activity to spend with the family, or with a group of friends. It is also a great source of exercise! Unlike skiing which requires a lot of gear and accessories, you simply need a pair of skates to take part and best of all, you do not need to take any lessons to get started.
