One of our favorite things to do in the winter is to go ice skating because it just seems like something you should do in the winter! Ice skating is also a summer favorite because the cool temperatures on the rink make us forget how hot and miserable it can be outside! Lucky for our family AND yours, there are several options for ice skating in the Indianapolis area. No matter how warm or cold it is outside, you and your family will want to dress warmly and wear layers so that if you do get too warm, you can remove a layer or put it back on if you get cold
