8 Ice Skating Rinks In NJ To Check Out This Season


Heading to one of the skating rinks in NJ is a classic activity you can’t go wrong with—the whole family can get in on the action, whether it’s just learning together or having a blast sliding along to tunes. And when the temps drop, it’s a great way to burn off some cooped-up inside energy, especially on a seasonal outdoor rink pop-up. Check out these outdoor rinks with holiday festivities as well as indoor ones where you can get ready to glide into the season.

Bergen County’s The Rink at Winter Wonderland
It’s back—this year’s Winter Wonderland kicks off the holiday season with lots of holiday activities and open-air skating, as well as a kids’ beginner rink, so you can bring first-timers learning to glide. Skating sessions are 50 minutes long, and you must purchase tickets in advance. Off the ice, littles can ride the carousel and zoo train, and you can feast on festive treats from the food trucks.
