How to Have the Most Fun Denver Ice Skating

Low temperatures and snow showers aside, winter brings a whole lot of fun with it, especially here in Colorado! Home to some of the nation’s best skiing and snowboarding, Colorado is a winter wonderland, loaded with things to do during the year’s coldest days. But don’t worry, you won’t need to take a trek to the mountains to enjoy one of the season’s best activities: Denver ice skating! There are few better ways to spend an evening than ice skating, and Denver has some great places for you to show off your skills.

Denver ice skating is just one of countless things we love about the Mile High City, and if you stay with us at Castle Marne Bed & Breakfast, you can explore our city for yourself. Download our free Denver Vacation Guide for a list of the things to do and see in Denver!
