Union Square Ice Rink
Union Square, San Francisco's main shopping district, gets into the ice skating spirit during the holiday season with an outdoor ice rink sponsored by Safeway. It's open November 7, 2018 through January 21, 2019 from 10 am to 11:30 pm daily. 90-minute sessions start on every even hour. Admission is $18 for adults and $13 for children eight and under and includes skate rental. Skate helper rentals cost $6. Group rates are also available through December 7 and from January 8–11. Information: (415) 781-2688 or www.unionsquareicerink.com.
Union Square is in downtown San Francisco between Post and Geary and Stockton and Powell Streets. We find parking is easiest at the Sutter-Stockton Garage, but plenty of other options are available. It's also convenient to public transportation, especially BART and Muni.
