Over the weekend, we went ice skating at the Cosmopolitan for date night, and it was a magical evening. We hung out at the cozy firepit, had a few boozy drinks, people watched, and then worked up the courage to ice skate.

We’re always looking for great views in Las Vegas and ice skating from this vantage point was just icing on the cake. It was really magical to experience snow right on the strip.
It was definitely crowded during our visit, but we still really enjoyed it. When the rink felt too crowded, we escaped to our fire pit and ordered drinks. Now that there’s limited capacity, it will be much better.
We ordered the Fire and Ice and Campfire Delight, which is basically s’mores in a glass.
We even won some money on the way out! :)
- Pick up this rechargeable hand warmer if you get cold easily. It comes with us on any chilly adventures and can charge your phone too!
- Wear thick socks to make the ice skates more comfortable.
- Dressing in layers is helpful so you can shed your jacket when you’re moving around but bundle up when you’re sitting.
