⛸️ 15 Nearby Places for Ice Skating Fun

By Kyrie Collins, Macaroni KID Highlands Ranch-Parker-Castle Rock-Lone Tree Publisher October 31, 2022

DID YOU KNOW? An hour of ice skating burns about as many calories as jogging but is lower impact and way more fun.

Whether you're looking for a fun family outing or a romantic date night, ice skating is a great winter activity and a memorable holiday tradition.

Following is a list of ice rinks — both indoor and outdoor — that we've found in the Denver Metro area. Outdoor rinks can have a pretty short skating season, so take advantage of the opportunity this winter!
