2015 Best Ice Skating

Community Ice Skating @Kendall

For those who find the idea of muscling their way into a frozen mosh pit deeply unappealing, think of Kendall Square’s rink as an antidote to the madness of the Frog Pond: a place where you can find low-key winter thrills, with plenty of Zamboni action to ensure smooth glide time. Warm up with an après-skate cuppa at Voltage, or a more-adult beverage at Firebrand Saints.
