The Cleveland Bucket List: Ice skating spots around town

Need something fun to do to burn off the kids' energy over holiday break? Check out The Cleveland Bucket List!

CLEVELAND — We are checking out The Cleveland Bucket List this week, and we've already showed you the Christmas Corner pop-up bar at Around the Corner in Lakewood.

If you're searching for a way to get the kids out of the house to get some physical activity over holiday break, there's an ice skating rink for everyone.

"I think skating is one of those things that people forget how fun it is until they do it again," said The Cleveland Bucket List founder Haley Mills. 

Mills recently took 3News' Jay Crawford to two of the best ice skating spots -- one indoor, one outdoor -- in the Cleveland area. She lists several on The Cleveland Bucket List.

"I think that you also often forget in Cleveland too, that you can skate. You can skate inside. You can skate outside. There's both skating almost all the time," said Mills.

The first spot we visited was an indoor rink in Rocky River, at Hamilton Ice Rink.

"My grandparents lived in Rocky River and this was the rink that we would come to all the time," Mills said. "I learned to skate here and our family would come here every year around the holidays."

It’s perfect if you don’t want to brave the outdoors…even for beginners.

"It's a great place to learn to you have the boards on the side so you can hug the boards if you need to," said Mills.

But if you do want to take in the sights and sounds outdoors, there are some other options. And that includes our second stop at the ice rink at Public Square in Downtown Cleveland.

"It's just so festive downtown," said Mills.

The Public Square rink is surrounded by other fun stuff to do, too.

"They have so many different activities going on around here too. So you can come get your picture with Santa and then go ice skating," Mills said.

The rinks featured on The Cleveland Bucket List all have skate rental options so you do not have to worry about having your own skates.
