I remember coming to ice skate at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park in high school. It was the closest ice skating rink to my hometown, Carrollton. At the time, it was one of the few (if not only) rinks in Atlanta. Unfortunately, this year the Centennial rink is closed due to construction and Super Bowl preparations. However, Atlanta is now offering over a dozen ice skating rinks for you to enjoy. Read our list of Atlanta’s best ice skating rinks to decide which one you should visit next!
