Looking for a cool escape from the summer heat? Check out The Ice Den in Scottsdale for an ideal summer activity.

Visit Alltel Ice Den – a state-of-the-art indoor skating rink in north Scottsdale.  Bundle up and enjoy the 55-degree fun! Public skating is a healthy activity for the whole family. For a unique skating experience, visit The Ice Den on Saturday nights, when the rink showcases a professional DJ spinning dance tunes, along with a light show.

After skating the rink and building up your appetite, head to The Chilly Bean for ice cream, fruit smoothies, hot pretzels and hot dogs, as well as hand picked coffee beans, freshly roasted, ground and brewed.

Or, if you go early, have breakfast at Over Easy for breakfast classics like farm-fresh eggs, fluffy pancakes and crispy French toast.

A third restaurant, the 18-Degree Grill features burgers and pizza.
