Places to Go Ice Skating




A Great Skating Rink is the Empire State Plaza  in Albany, NY

Ice Skating is truly the traditional winter sport for individuals of all ages, and Upstate has both inside/outside rinks as well as natural places where you can skate close to nature, especially in the State Parks. When skating on ponds and lakes, be sure the ice is thick and safe.
