Best Place to Ice Skate and ... Bowl? San Francisco 2007 - Yerba Buena Ice Skating & Bowling Center
Turns out that ice skating and bowling is the chocolate and peanut butter of the recreational world. Two great tastes few knew went so well together, this unconventional combination of activities hosted in one complex is a good option to consider when entertaining visitors with differing tastes in recreation. Both happen to make good spectator sports as well, so even sideliners can enjoy themselves. Maybe they'll even spot the next Bay Area star, since we're responsible for Olympic champs Peggy Fleming, Brian Boitano, and Kristi Yamaguchi. Those brave enough to strap on blades to try to emulate these local heroes will find a smooth and level ice surface that is both superior to most rinks in the Bay Area and particularly gentle on beginners. An ideal time for both pursuits: Saturday nights, when the skating goes until 11 p.m. and the bowling until midnight.
