Ice Capades: DC’s Best Outdoor Rinks

If you've watched the Winter Olympic Games, oh, ever, then you already know the figure-skating competition is pretty much the best part. The theatrics, the athleticism, the costumes — it's all there, people. So, since you’re already in awe of those magnificent leaps and spins, why not run with the inspiration and try it for yourself?
The DMV's outdoor rinks promise beautiful settings, the (no-pressure) chance to practice your skills, and classic, calorie-burning fun. Don’t have skates? No problem — all of our picks provide rentals. Never skated before? Most offer lessons, too.
Hopefully, watching the Games will inspire you to channel your inner Michelle Kwan and take a spin on the ice. And, for that, you'll get perfect 10s from us.
