Living in Georgia means that snow and ice are a rare occurrence. You may see a light dusting of snow from time to time when it gets really cold, but you can forget about the winter wonderland scenes that you'd find up north. However, that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy some winter-time fun right here in Georgia, especially if you want to go ice skating near Atlanta.
If you want to enjoy an ice-skating experience like no other, then you need to head to Avalon on Ice. You know the Rockefeller Ice Rink in New York City? Well, Avalon on Ice was inspired by the massive rink, which means you're going to get a top-notch skating experience when you go.
The rink opened on Nov. 24, but don't worry, you still have plenty of time to check it out. It's going to be open until Jan. 26, so you may even have time to go skating there more than once.
You don't have to worry if you don't have your own ice skates, either. They are included in the price of admission, so all you have to do is show up and be ready to get your skate on.
Let's be honest—ice skating is way harder than it looks, and it's easy to fall basically as soon as you get onto the ice.
Of course, you can always just hold onto your besties as you wind aroud the rink, but if you want to take your skating skills to the next level, you can always participate in the skating school or take private lessons.
That way, you'll be zipping across the ice in no time at all. Just take a look at the website to get more information on lessons and classes.
Getting into the holiday spirit is as easy as can be when you get the chance to lace up your skates and hit the ice with your closest friends. You don't miss out on all the fun you'll have at Avalon on Ice this year.
