Quantcast

Skating was a big part of my childhood. No, I didn’t make it to the Olympic trials or anything like that. But as a child, I spent most Saturdays at our local rink playing the number game and the Hokey Pokey. As a teen, I spent many weekend evenings there, sporting my pink silk jacket (anybody else?) and hoping someone would invite me to the couples skate. Sure, the world has changed a lot since those days but kids are kids. Trust me. Skating is a great way to get kids (of almost any age) active and away from their phones, laptops, tablets, etc for a few hours.  Moms and dads can join in the fun too.  I know you’ve still got those moves you perfected in the 80’s and 90’s.  So lace up those skates and hit the rink with your kids. Or get a babysitter and plan a retro date night! Whether you prefer ice skating or roller skating, you can find plenty of places to do both in Nashville and Middle Tennessee.
