We love skating at Reston Town Center and down on the mall in DC. But we'd like try some new places. Where are some other good places to skate in Nova (or, within an hour's drive)? Indoor or outdoor skating is fine, although we like outdoor better.

Considering how cold it's been this year, are there any lakes that are frozen enough to skate on?

We went to Fairfax Ice Arena on Pickett in FFX City last week. It was fun!

Ashburn has the Ice House. You can call to see if they have public skating.

We took lessons and skated at Skate Quest last year. Have heard of good things about Ashburn Ice House too.

There's a small rink at Pentagon Row. Generally filled with very small children though, compared to Reston's teenage population.

There's a rink up on top of Ballston Common mall that I think has open skating at times. The Capitals practice there.

My beloved Caps practice there? Woohoo, I'm on my way! Maybe I'll see that new guy, I really like him.

I grew up skating at Fairfax Ice Arena and we loved it.

Old Town Manassas at the Pavillon has outdoor skating.
