When in New York City, enjoy the American Museum of Natural History's new state-of-the-art skating rink; open through February 28, 2009.

Located on the Arthur Ross Terrace, on the Museum's north side, The Polar Rink offers magnificent views of the glowing Rose Center for Earth and Space and is surrounded by Theodore Roosevelt Park.

Skaters glide around a 17-foot-tall polar covered in twinkling lights.

Non-skaters can enjoy the splendor of The Polar Rink from surrounding benches on the Terrace under trees adorned with lights, or from the glassed-in North Galleria adjacent to the rink; where hot cocoa and snacks are served.

Opening Hours:
12–8 pm Monday–Thursday
12–10 pm Friday
11 am–10 pm Saturday and holidays
11 am–8 pm Sunday

Tickets cost $10 for adults; $9 for students and seniors; and $8 for children between the ages of 3 to 12. AMNH Members get a $2 discount.

Enter the Museum via Columbus Avenue and 79th Street to purchase tickets for The Polar Rink.

Christmas Countdown Starts Early

Thursday, November 06, 2008

The Official Travel Notes Blog

Is it just me or does the Christmas countdown start too early?

Christmas is still seven weeks away yet the Regent's Street lights (London) have just been turned on; with the theme 'Wish Upon a Star'.

My wish is that they'd save the Christmas countdown this for the first of December - or even December 6th.

Harrods, London

But if you're visiting London soon - Happy Christmas shopping.
