I know we’re still on the spooky season vibe but prep for a winter wonderland is underway!  I just love ice skating and if you want to skate by the sea it’s all about my favorite shore spot, Long Branch!

The outdoor ice skating rink at Pier Village is happening again this year!  It will open on November 25th and stay open through February 26th.  Can you ice skate or are you a side-clinger?

Don’t worry, they offer those walkers on blades if you want to learn the ropes.

Isn’t there always that one former Ice Capades member in the center showing off?  The rest of us are laser-focused on not biting the dust and they are doing a triple Salchow topped off with a Scott Hamilton backflip.

They are accepting all levels at the rink and it is all about family fun.  I can’t wait to go this year!

If you have not been to The Pier in Long Branch in a while you have to give it a try.  They have such fantastic restaurants like The Butcher’s Block or McLoons and don’t forget my very favorite ice cream place while you are there The Baked Bear.  Yum! This is why you must go!
