Even in the winter cold you still can have fun in New York. Grab your skates or rent a pair and head to the Rockefeller Center, Central Park, or Bryant Park. While the first two are fee-based, the third one is free. However, all of them offer some great skating or a hot chocolate while observing the wonderful scenery of the city. Aside from the ordinary skating you can take classes of a figure or synchronized skating and improve your skills. The atmosphere on the rinks is truly magical and romantic. No wonder one of them, the iconic Wollman rink, is even ​featured in a couple of romantic movies. At night wh​en the city lights turn on the view is even more picturesque. Skating under the starry sky is one of New York's oldest and most beloved winter traditions.
