Rockefeller Center Too Crowded, How About Lake Las Vegas?
Last week I mentioned that Las Vegas has become one of the hot destinations for the Thanksgiving holidays. If you are looking for a touch of a traditional holiday experience of a skate around an ice skating rink, Lake Las Vegas offers a unique twist on the old favorite, a floating skating rink This is the fourth year that MonteLago Village and Lake Las Vegas Resort have constructed floating ice skating rink in the middle of the desert. The Rockefeller Center-sized rink floats on the 320-acre Lake Las Vegas, near the shores of MonteLago Village and is open to skaters of all ages. The resorts use an ecologically safe glycol mix to freeze the surface water of the lake. The rink uses 110, five-gallon buckets of water and a 12,000-pound freezer to help keep the ice cold, and it can accommodate up to 60 skaters at a time. The rink is open from November 16, 2007 through February 17, 2008. MonteLago Village Resort offers a Holiday Skate, Stay & Shop package that includes one-night accommodations in a luxury condominium, ice skating and skate rentals and starts at $64.50 per person, based on double occupancy.
