Imagine the crisp December air nips at your cheeks, carrying the scent of hot cocoa and pine needles, while festive melodies dance around you. This isn’t a scene from a Christmas movie; it’s the reality waiting for you at the Ice Skating San Antonio Rink Near The Pearl, a dazzling addition to San Antonio’s holiday landscape because finally, it’s now open!
I definitely felt like I was in a holiday film, so make sure to visit it too!
Ice Skating San Antonio Rink Near The Pearl – An Outdoor Winter Wonderland
Opened in November 2023, this rink has quickly become the crown jewel of the Pearl’s holiday festivities. Also known as the largest outdoor ice skating rink in all of Texas, how big the ice skating rink is in person isn’t the only thing that’s impressive, the entire experience was everything I hoped for and more!
Being right across from the Pearl’s South parking lot, getting to the rink is a quick walk. I’d recommend getting there early because I got there at 7:30 pm and it was really busy! After paying for your ticket, expect a pair of rental skates and an hour to skate your heart out.
