Winterfest Ice Skating at Seattle Center
My daughter decided that for her borthday, she wanted to go ice skating and I told her that there was no where to skate around here. She of course had already done her homework and pointed out that we could ice skate practically under the Space Needle if we wanted to. Seattle Center has Winterfest going on right now and there are lots of events including…ice skating.

Ice Skating at Seattle Center was something indeed! It was especially significant for my daughter who has grown up hearing stories of her great grandparents having their first dates ice skating at the Seattle Center. The Winterfest Ice Skating Rink is a in Fisher Pavilion and very crowded, but a pretty amazing winter experience overall.
Seattle Center is the heart of Seattle local events. It is a great place to explore and a wonderful part of Uptown (Lower Queen Anne). If you are interested in Queen Anne homes or other Seattle neighborhoods that are close by Seattle Center, then let me know and I will show you my favorites!
