The recent weather definitely agrees with outdoor winter activities.

Yes, that includes outdoor ice skating (my absolute favorite).

Whether it's a family fun day, date night or just hanging out with friends - outdoor ice skating is always a fun idea.

I've rounded up the best ones in New Jersey and PA and created this list just for you.
