Winter date ideas
Ice Skating: One of the most popular spots this December is ICE, the ice skating rink located in Downtown Santa Monica. Making it the perfect place for you two. Every holiday season they bring a little ice to our beachside community, transforming the corner of 5th Street and Arizona Avenue into the winter wonderland known as Ice at Santa Monica, an 8,000-square-foot ice-skating rink.
Hiking: Climb up into the hills before those sweaty summertime days—and crowds—return. And did we mention the views? The best part of the rainy season (other than, you know, having water to drink) has to be the clear skies that showers leave behind. Just make sure to keep in mind the cooler temperatures and fleeting daylight before you set out on your trek.
Snow Day LA (Winter Tubing): Experience multiple winter themed synthetic tubing lanes built directly onto the giant hills of The Old Lodge at Montecillo De Leo Politi Park. Only 5 minutes from Downtown LA. Hop on a tube and fly through twinkling light archways, decorated trees and falling snow! The address is: 2002 Stadium Way Los Angeles, CA 90026.
Beach: It might defy our West Coast common sense, but winter is the perfect time to go to the beach. Even though, the water temperature is probably hypothermia-inducing, no one plans on entering the water anyways. Beach city temperatures typically range within 70 degrees during the winter, which is cold enough to keep the tourists away but warm enough to relax with a comfy sweatshirt.
Warm up with a bowl of Ramen: Warm yourself up with a nice, steaming bowl of ramen. With ramen, you can’t go wrong with a stop to Little Tokyo or, for students desiring a closer location: Sawtelle. Either way, get your soup spoon ready for those days where the unbearable cold arrives to sunny LA.
