Ice Skate | Great Lakes Guide
  • Ice Skate

Ice skating is certainly one of the most popular winter activities. Whether you’re playing hockey, practicing your toe jumps, or strapping on a pair of skates for the first time, the Great Lakes region is the perfect skating destination. Skate along the Rideau Canal in Ottawa (the largest natural skating rink in the world!) for a truly unique winter experience. Or, head over to one of the Great Lakes’ parks to skate through the forest trails or on nearby ponds and frozen inlets. Whatever destination you choose, you are sure to find a charming spot to glide through the region’s unmatched winter scenery.

I went skating on this river every weekend. In the winter my brother and I took turns bringing our friends with my dad, and when we headed home we always stopped for hot chocolate.
