Just when Las Vegas couldn't get any weirder, visitors began strapping on ice skates and making their way around an ice rink... in the middle of the desert. The Venetian and The Palazzo have had an ice rink during the winter months for a few years now, but the experience at The Cosmopolitan is an all-encompassing blast from the snowy past.
In addition to an ice rink (and skate rental, if needed), visitors can order winter-themed cocktails and cozy comfort food. There are fire pits around which to warm up, and you can buy s'mores kits.
The Cosmopolitan has done a really good job of utilizing its outdoor pool space for all it's worth, and this is no exception. In addition to having these wintery activities available during the day to visitors and locals alike, there are organized events such as Monday date skate nights and industry skate evenings that turn the rink into an outdoor club scene.
Bonus: This year, the rink will feature snow-falls every 30 minutes. Yep, snow in Las Vegas.
