Sunday Funday - Robson Square Ice Skating
Even though the snow has melted in Vancouver except on the mountains and the rain has started, there are still winter activities that you can do. Robson Square Ice Skating is one of them. It is conveniently located downtown on Robson Street underneath the Vancouver Art Gallery.
It is a small rink but it gives people a break from shopping. They have skate rentals for $4 but remember to bring cash. I helped chaperone my niece's 14 year old birthday party and took the girls there to skate around. We didn't stay and went across the street to Cafe Artigiano for a Spanish coffee. Okay, I wasn't really a chaperone since 14 years old kind of have a mind of their own. I was there to be a human GPS and keep my sister company.
Skating Robson Square take about an hour or less before it can be a bit too repetitive but it is unique and fun event if you are downtown. Plus the girls had fun taking selfies and doing their own photo shoots likely to post to each other on Snapchat. (That's my best guess!).
After skating we walked down to Cartem's Donuts.
Robson Square Ice Skating is open until February 14th (Valentine's Day) from 9am - 9pm Sunday - Thursday and 9am - 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
