YEP, THE HOLIDAYS... are already in the works for many hotels, especially those historic destinations where Christmas trees and decorations and lights go a bit, well, over the top. Hotel del Coronado just made the announcement in mid-September regarding its annual Skating by the Sea rink, and its Nov. 26 debut. There's also a "Skate & S'mores" package to ponder, a deal that includes a stay at the hotel, a skate session that's a good long hour, and s'mores by a bonfire on the nearby beach, to make you nice and toasty after all of that ice-adjacent-ness. The much-photographed ice rink isn't the only gewgaw to sparkle upon The Del's proverbial tree come November and December; a Victorian tea, a New Year's Eve gala, and the famous lobby tree are all in the just-ahead works. The only question remaining is not the one involving the plastic kid's bucket and how much ocean water would be required to make a rink; it is whether you'll need to go full winter regarding your clothing or not. You may need mittens or you may be there on an especially temperate winter's day. Do they make a swimsuit/knit cap combo? Perhaps that's the best outfit for both ice rink and beach enjoyment.
