Who says you can’t ice skate in the South? Not Atlantans. No matter whether you skate like a member of Team USA or you are a teeny bit unstable standing on top of two steel blades, you can add to your holiday cheer by grabbing the kids or your besties and gliding around one of these Atlanta skating rinks.

In-Town Skating

So be sure to check for the days it is open, and note that it will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Christmas Day. You’ll skate inside a billowing tent under white lights. Après skating, sip hot chocolate and munch s’mores or, if you worked up a big appetite, order from a full menu. $30 per hour for adults; $18 for kids.

  • Ponce City Market. Skate the Sky on the Rooftop Terrace as the city lights twinkle below. Cost is $25 for adults and $15 for children and includes Skyline Park admission.
