Los Angeles might not be known as a winter sports epicenter, but during the holiday season outdoor ice skating becomes a favorite pastime. Discover the best outdoor ice rinks to skate this winter, from Downtown LA to Burbank, Santa Monica, and Orange County. Most are open at least through mid-January, but check the schedule to be sure.
