Ice Skating In North Carolina At A New Spot With Lots To Offer
It’s straight out of a Hallmark Christmas movie. I’m talking about ice skating for the holidays. And, there’s a new spot this year for ice skating in North Carolina. It’s in full swing now through Januray 7 and open every day, weather permitting.
But, just where is this new ice skating rink? It’s located at 400 Camp Road in Charlotte, North Carolina. For those in the know, that’s Camp North End. And, according to Charlotte On The Cheap, “Camp North Pole” grants general admission for adults at $15. Kids 5 and under are just $10. And,don’t worry about bringing skates. The price includes skate rental. Although, you can wear your own if you like.
And, the hours on weekdays for ice skating at Camp North End begin at 4 p.m. On weekends, things open up at noon. Plus, make sure you check their site and social media for special holiday hours during Christmas. Also, Charlotte On The Cheap points out there’s more to do at Camp North End besides just skating. There’s “Mistletoe Market,” a “Reindeer Parade,” and The Lodge at Camp North End. See the full article for more details concerning events and parking.
But, the mere mention of holiday ice skating in North Carolina takes me back to our family experience at Rockefeller Center in New York. We took a trip between Christmas and New Year’s when our son was in high school. I couldn’t wait to do the whole ice skating thing we all see in the movies. After plenty of planning and waiting for our turn to take the ice, it was quite an experience. However, it wasn’t the one I imagined.
So, all I can say is I never quit gripping the handrails hanging on for dear life. I know the folks having dinner at restaurants surrounding the famous rink probably got some hilarious video of my terrified face. And, in a matter of minutes we deemed the adventure over. But, I’m glad we did it!
Anyway, Camp North End’s ice skating and holiday events sound like a wonderful time. So, give it a try!
