During the colder months, one of the coolest amenities makes an appearance at The Wharf: our ice rink. Come to Transit Pier right outside The Anthem and lace up your skates—bring your own or rent some rink-side—to glide over the ice and enjoy amazing views of the water. While you’re here, treat yourself to some hot beverages and seasonal specialties at our nearby restaurants.
