On the waterfront
Embarcadero Center, San Francisco
Gaze at the Ferry Building's stunning white clock tower and the sprawling Bay Bridge while you carve up the ice.
The scene: First-daters, birthday parties, and plenty of San Francisco characters.
The inside scoop: Make a night of it with a skate under the (fog-covered) stars followed by a cocktail at the Ferry Building's Slanted Door.
