If you’re one of those lucky romantics who had a dreamy Valentine’s Day, your work isn’t over yet. You just spent all your money on that special day, but now your significant other has high expectations for your next date. Keep your sweetheart and your wallet happy with this seasonal and affordable date.
Hopefully you’re not too sick of all the snow and cold temperatures yet. Resist the urge to stay snuggled together in bed watching Netflix and go hold hands outside at the Alex and Ani City Center ice rink.
For only $7 each (plus a $5 rental if you don’t own skates), you can go ice-skating for up to four hours at a beautiful outdoor ice rink in the heart of Providence. The rink is twice the size of Rockefeller Center in New York City and is the perfect setting for winter romance.
Whether you’re showing off your skating skills or clinging to each other to keep from slipping, you’re bound to have a fun time and get a bit of exercise in an unconventional way. If you’ve never slid around on ice before, you can visit www.alexandanicitycenter.com to learn what to wear, how to tie your skates, tips for your visit and more.
Plan your date for this Saturday, Feb. 21, and cozy up with FREE hot chocolate. If you arrive between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., you can take part in BridgePointe Christian Church’s Give Love Away event and sip steaming hot cocoa to warm up after a few hours of skating.
