Great Outdoor Ice Skating Rinks

I love ice skating during the winter months. It is fun, cheap, and a great workout! I even own 2 pairs of my own skates! I always keep my skates in the car in case I find a rink while out. There are all different types of rinks – park district rinks, city rinks, or […]
