Gliding Through the Hills, Beverly Hills That Is

Beverly Hills, California—Reported by Elite Traveler, Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

‘Tis the season to prance, jump or maybe even glide through the hills on a one horse sleigh, as the old carol goes, and the City of Beverly Hills wants to celebrate the holidays with the city’s first ever full-scale, public ice rink located in the Golden Triangle. Positioned in front of the iconic Beverly Hills City Hall building on Crescent Drive between North and South Santa Monica Boulevards, the ice skating rink (made of real ice) is open December 1, 2012 – January 6, 2013, providing entertainment throughout the season for visitors and locals alike.

Offering one-of-a-kind décor, festive activities and holiday promotions throughout the season—including special holiday dining menus, extended store hours and holiday events—bottled water, gloves and socks will all be available for purchase; perfect for those who wish to watch the skaters from the quaint viewing areas. After an hour long session, skaters can stroll into the Golden Triangle for some hot chocolate, holiday bites or to finish their shopping for the season.

“The holidays are one of the most exciting times of the year in Beverly Hills,” says Julie Wagner, executive director of Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau. “This year, with the debut of the ice rink, locals and visitors will be infused with holiday spirit and transported to a winter wonderland right in the middle of Los Angeles.”

The ice skating rink will operate seven days a week and activities will include Santa at The Paley Center, holiday trolley tours with Mrs. Claus, live entertainment at Two Rodeo featuring holiday music, carolers, Santa and snow and plenty of lights and decor along Rodeo Drive. In addition, the lobby tree at Beverly Wilshire, a Rodeo Drive-perched Four Seasons Hotel, is decorated by Tiffany & Co. in celebration of its 175th anniversary year.
