Best Place to Learn to Skate

Cleveland Heights Community Center Ice Rink

All the Cleveland Heights Community Center Ice Rink's teachers are former skating stars, but what makes them great is their endless patience -- a key attribute when dealing with wobbly six-year-olds and creaky-kneed dads. The half-hour classes are divided by both age and skill level, so beginning adults don't have to compete with kids for attention. And classes are offered year-round, so you don't have to wait till the leaves fall to learn how to lace up a skate.
