The weather outside is frightful, but inside the roller skate rink it is so delightful… That might have been a stretch, but it’s not a stretch to say that an afternoon at a local roller skate rink is a great way to entertain the family during the harshness of winter. There are a lot of great roller skating rinks in the metro Detroit area, and we have picked five we think you should checkout.
