The city’s latest wintertime attraction—dubbed Boston Winter, appropriately enough—recently opened on City Hall Plaza, and it’s already heating up the downtown scene. Its centerpiece is New England’s first custom-designed skating path (pictured), which offers 11,000 square feet of ice surface for both experts and beginners to explore. There’s also a Bavarian Village for all your holiday shopping needs through December 31, as well as the tented Urban Lodge, which offers snacks and beverages for both kids and adults; interactive wine and chocolate tasting experiences (both through December 31); and a spot to take pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus through December 24. There’s even a 20-foot-tall, pedal-powered Christmas tree and a spectacular menorah display. Daily hours and ticket prices vary, so check out cityhallplazaboston.com for details.
