If you can’t get away for ski season, there is always skating in town. At The Rink at Rockefeller Center, you can go for a skate under the eye of gilded Prometheus, and then more.
Early birds might go for an invigorating skate followed by breakfast at Rock Center Café. Those less inclined to wake up early might instead go for a later skating session with an “Après Skate” experience ($99 for two, including general admission, skate rental, two cocktails or glasses of wine, and a shared plate).
If keeping fit is high on the list in this new year, Olympic ice skater JoJo Starbuck is offering adult classes on Thursday mornings, 7:30–8:30 ($65 includes exclusive use of rink for one hour, coaching, continental breakfast, and rental skates).
