Winterfest OC

Winterfest has a cool outdoor ice skating rink. You skate next to a 30 ft tall Christmas tree with all the sparkling decorations and lights. If you get tired of skating you can always enjoy the other activities at the OC Fair event center. They have face painting, carnival thrills, a craft tent, an inflatable maze, a holiday Ferris wheel, an oversized holiday decor, a snowboard simulator, live entertainment, holiday treats, food, and drink, a petting zoo, a visit by Santa Claus, and so much more. This a family-friendly holiday attraction and one you do not want to miss. They do offer skate rentals.

Great Park Ice

Great Park has an ice skating rink that is open year-round. It is indoor and they offer public skating lessons. If you are a novice it is a great place to learn. The rink surface is well-managed and there is plenty of space to learn. The Great Park Ice is a wonderful place to get your ice skating itch scratched. I think it is one best ice skating rinks in the Orange County area.
