Enjoy an oasis of winter wonderland in the heart of Santa Monica. Once a year, Downtown Santa Monica brings a little skate to the surf and transforms the corner of 5th Street and Arizona Avenue into Ice at Santa Monica, a premier outdoor ice skating rink. Celebrating its 5th Anniversary, the 8,000 square ft. rink by the beach offers residents and visitors a little taste of winter without the bite.
Want to work up an appetite for your Thanksgiving feast? Then head to Long Beach for the annual Turkey Trot. This charity 5K/10K run (or walk) offers four different start times (between 7:30am to 10:30am), depending on how early you want to get up. There’s also a half-mile “Wingding” for kids 8 and younger. Lucky random participants will be rewarded with a holiday pie. If running isn’t your thing, enter the free Chicken Chucking Championship and see how far you can fling a rubber chicken.
