This year, the Wells Fargo Winter Skate crew is trying something a little different, setting up shop at CHS Field rather than in Rice Park. That means that St. Paul has even more winter wonderlands sprinkled throughout the city, with seasonal happenings scheduled outside Landmark Center, on the State Fairgrounds, and beyond. The one in Lowertown, Destination Winter Saint Paul, is decidedly on the sporty side, with skating and a giant slide to zoom down. The rink is free for all, though you can rent skates for $5 if you need a pair (or rent them for free if you bank at Wells Fargo). Folks who enjoy sledding may love the SuperSlide, a ride for kids and adults. People can score unlimited slide rides by the hour for $7 to $10. Other amenities include hot chocolate, heating lamp stations, and snacks. Added bonus: The new location is right by a few neighborhood bars, making it a great date-night activity if you head there a little later in the evening.
