Where to Go Ice Skating in Atlanta
Who says you can’t go ice skating in the South? Not Atlantans. No matter whether you skate like a member of Team USA or you are a teeny bit unstable standing on top of two steel blades, you can add to your holiday cheer by grabbing the kids or your besties and gliding around one of these Atlanta skating rinks. Check websites for safety protocols.
