Open Skate

Sure, outdoor rinks can be fun. However, during the coldest months the weather can make them unbearable, and snagging an edge on an ice bump is never a good time. Fortunately, these factors are never a problem at the charming Depot Skating Rink. Here, you'll find well-maintained ice inside a heated former train shed. With floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for spectacular views of downtown Minneapolis, it's not hard to imagine why both USA Today and MSNBC have placed the venue on their lists of best rinks in the United States. Open skate works well as a date-night activity, with wine, beer, and coffee available from the snack bar, or bring the kids for some pizza and help them practice their moves on the ice (and rent a skate trainer for $2 if someone in your group is really wobbly). Visit for open-skate hours.
