Here in Tampa, FL, we’re blessed with some pretty amazing weather. While our friends to the north get blasted by snow and ice and freezing rain, we’re able to stay pretty comfortable during the winter months. But our amazing weather does mean we miss out on some fun winter activities, like skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Now, you may have noticed we left ice skating off of that list. That’s because we’re fortunate enough to have some awesome ice rinks around the area that let us enjoy some cold winter fun without having to abandon our sunny paradise. To see what we mean, check out these ice skating rinks around Tampa, FL. You won’t be disappointed.
