Thanks to Rowan After Hours (RAH) providing students with a free shuttle bus to and from Philly (almost) every Friday, I spent my night attempting to learn to ice skate.
At the Rothman Institute Ice Rink, located at Dilworth Park in Philly, it only costs $10 to rent skates and $5 for admission into the rink. Throughout the holiday season the ice rink is surrounded by a cafe (which is perfect to warm up in after ice skating) and a holiday market featuring local artisans, designers, crafters, and confectionaries, where you can find unique presents.
Explore Dilworth Park and the rest of Philly through RAH’s shuttle! Check-in for the bus starts at 6:30 pm and leaves at 7:00 pm (it runs on a first-come, first-serve basis, so I suggest getting there a couples minutes early). Drop-off and pick-up points are the same location, so I’d recommend writing it down on your Notes app in your phone. There are two shuttles back to campus, 10:00 pm and 12:00 am, which gives you enough time to explore the city at your own pace.
