Since the first time the Travis Park Ice Skating Rink opened its doors or floors in 2019, hundreds of people have made the trip downtown, and this year, I was one of them! The Rotary Ice Rink by Valero has been open since November 17 and will be available every day until January 15, 2024. While I made my way to the ice on a Monday night, you can visit the Travis Park Ice Skating rink every day! It was busy when I was skating around so I’d recommend coming here as early as possible.

For holidays, please check out the operating hours here.

Being downtown, you don’t have to worry about food options. I got Voodoo Donuts before getting on the ice and noticed a couple of food trucks that I’ll check out next time! There’s also parking all around the park but keep a lookout for towing areas!

Again, it got busy with the Ice Skating Rink, Christmas Tree, and lights around so bring your friends or family for this budget-friendly holiday activity!
