Salt Lake City, Utah
Skating on the old rink was like doing laps around a kiddie pool, but 2010’s revamp made it 60 percent larger. The scene: Families and couples whirl around after downtown shopping. The inside scoop: The rental shop has an Olympic-class sharpener that’ll hone your blades to perfection for $5. Too hardcore? There’s Uinta beer on tap and hot chocolate at Patterson’s Pub.
