19 Outdoor Ice Skating Rinks in Boston + Beyond

I've been meaning to post about outdoor rinks FOREVER, but every time I've adjusted my editorial calendar to post, the weather got weirdly warm! So finally, here we go! Here's a roundup of 19 outdoor spots to skate, alphabetically ordered by city/town. Check out individual links for condition updates, skate rental availability, and -- in my opinion rather critically -- snack and hot cocoa availability!
