The 8,000 square foot rink by the beach offers residents and visitors a little taste of winter without the bite. A great location to celebrate the holidays, ICE at Santa Monica is the perfect place to hang out with friends and family, throw a party in a private event cabana, enjoy a first date or sign up for skate lessons.
