From indoor to outdoor rinks, we've got the list that you need to glide your way to some classic fun.

Nothing can be more quintessentially winter than strapping on some skates and taking a few laps around your local ice rink. Whether you are in the metro area or taking a trip to the mountains, there's a manmade or natural ice patch with your name on it. Check out each rink for rules, hours, dates, and costs. Many allow you to bring your own skates or rent skates by the hour, as well.
