$6 Ice Skating
Right before you hibernate this season get into the mood of the season by ice skating. In Baltimore there are two local ice rinks that you can go to. There is Mt. Pleasant Ice Arena and Dominic “Mimi” DiPietro Family Skating Center.
Both have the same admission and roughly the same time (times posted below) so the only difference that would make you pick one from another is location.
If you are located downtown or East of Baltimore, then you are better off going to the Family Skating Center. Located in the heart of Patterson Park at 200 S. Linwood Avenue, you can enjoy the park and all its amenities before or after your skating session.
If you are North of Baltimore, the Mt. Pleasant Ice Arena is at 6101 Hillen Road minutes from Morgan State University. It is also worth noting that the Mt. Pleasant Golf Course is located next to the skating rink so you don’t have to go far if you also want to hit a round of golf after you carve the ice. Mt. Pleasant also has a twitter feed that gives updates on any changes in time. Follow them on @mtpleasantice. Unfortunately Family Skating Center does not have a twitter.
Prices are very reasonable with $4 admission fee but only $2 for ice skate rentals. However it is cash only for both locations so please stop by an ATM before you head there.
If you also want to learn how to skate, Mt. Pleasant Ice Arena also offers ice skating lessons programs. Inquire here.
