It's every Texan's dream to experience a winter in the way that many other states get to each year. Sitting around a fire roasting s'mores, going outside in gloves, scarves and boots, and even, ice skating outdoors. Houston is one city in Texas that's able to make these dreams come true, but you'll have to see it to believe it.

Starting on Friday, November 15 and lasting until Sunday, February 2, Discovery Green in Houston is transforming into an outdoor ice skating rink for all to enjoy. Their opening day will be one of celebration, with the first 50 skaters skating free, and the skate rental fee will be waived for every other skater! You'll want to dress for the occasion because it'll finally feel like winter in Texas.

After opening day, general admission is just $11 per person, and if you need to rent skates there'll be an additional charge of $4. "Cheap Skate Nights" occur occasionally, so keep your eye out for those very special evenings.

Their hours vary depending on the day as well as weather conditions, but you can expect to skate anytime between 5 to 10 p.m. most days. Holidays will have special hours as well, to ensure you're celebrating the right way.

We can't wait for next month to be here and to be able to finally enjoy a sliver of what most other states get to. Being from the South is tough, but it certainly has its rewards. Grab your skates and make a road trip if necessary, 'cause the view from Discovery Green is going to be incredible!
