Who Needs Rockefeller Plaza?

If you’re looking for some good, old-fashioned fun, check out the outdoor ice skating rink in historic Folsom, open through January 25. We headed to the festive area this week and marveled at the how amazing it is to have a frozen outdoor rink in light jacket weather!

The historic district has plenty in the way of shops and restaurants, too. We stopped by Karen’s Bakery (just a block from the rink) and enjoyed quick snack:  a snowman sugar cookie, a gingerbread cookie, a slice of triple berry pie and some hot cocoa.

Karen’s also offers more substantial fare, and on a not-too-wintry day, the outdoor patio is a great place to catch the sights and sounds of the season.

If you’re looking for some great pizza, try Pizzeria Classico (just two blocks from the rink), or if you’re in the mood for some decadent sweets, head over to Snook’s .

These are only a few of the wide array of food options in historic Folsom, so take a walk along its main street and enjoy some unique holiday charm.
