When it comes to getting into the holiday spirit—or just generally the spirit of wintertime—there’s really nothing quite like ice skating, right? And as a guest here at The Crescent Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas, you happen to have a number of excellent local options on that front at your disposal!
Here’s a quick tour of just some of the Dallas-Fort Worth ice-skating rinks within easy reach of your Crescent Hotel guest room or suite.
The Stockyards Rodeo Rink at the Fort Worth Stockyards (131 E. Exchange Ave, Fort Worth, TX)
Mere minutes away from The Crescent Hotel, the historic Fort Worth Stockyards—one of the premier attractions in the DFW area—offer their own ice-skating rink, marketed under the perfect Cowtown slogan of “Giddy Up and Glide!”
The well-maintained Stockyard Rodeo Rink opens for daily rain-or-shine skating beginning this year on Monday, November 20th. The cost includes skate rentals and lands you 90 minutes out on the ice.
The Peace Plaza Skating Rink (815 S. Main St., Grapevine, TX)
Or head over to Peace Plaza in nearby Grapevine, Texas, where you’ll find another fabulous outdoor rink that also opens for the season on November 20th and runs through Sunday, January 7th. The Peace Plaza Skating Rink offers hourlong skating sessions, and here again the cost includes your rental skates.
ICE at The Parks (3815 S. Cooper St., Arlington, TX)
Less than a half-hour away from The Crescent Hotel in Fort Worth, The Parks Mall harbors Arlington, Texas’s one and only full-size, NHL-regulation skating rink: ICE at The Parks.
Here you can combine a little bit (or a lot of bit) of holiday shopping with loops and twirls out on the skating rink, which besides public skating offers lessons, hockey, and other on-the-ice fun.
Galleria Dallas Ice Skating Center (13350 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, TX)
Among the metroplex’s best-known ice-skating destinations, the Galleria Dallas Ice Skating Center has hosted such figure-skating luminaries as Kristi Yamaguchi on its top-class rink. Enjoy a casual holiday skate or hone your skills via the Ice Skating School.
And given the skating center’s situated right within one of the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s top-draw malls, Galleria Dallas, you’ve got another no-brainer option for making some headway on your holiday list as well!
