There’s nothing better in winter than ice skating. The whole family can don skates at a number of facilities, including the open-air Rink at the Brink, overlooking Horseshoe Falls. Afterward, you can warm up with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or coffee. If you’re up for a quick drive, try the Lindt hot chocolate at Willow Cakes & Pastries, on Queen Street.
