A special place that can only be visited during the chilly winter months, is a great place to enjoy a few hours of skating, while taking in the beautifiul view of Port Jefferson harbor. Whether skating with friends or just skating by yourself, the ice rink is a great hangout place. For those who are watching others skate, the second-floor lounge is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the sights below.
If you don't have skates, that's no problem. You can easily rent skates for the session and return them when you're done. For skaters who have their own personal skates, the rental area also provides skate sharpening. If you are interested in lessons, the Rinx has various days and times for lessons, with many different levels that suit your learning abilities.
At the Rinx, you can buy skating passes. Skating passes are slips of paper that you can use at any session instead of money. For a payment of $42.00 (children) or $57.00 (adult) you can buy 7 skating passes. You can buy these at any time during the season and they really are a helpful, easy way to pay.
So, next time you aren't sure what to do, come to the Port Jefferson Rinx at Harborfront Park, and, don't forget to bundle up!
