Jacksonville Ice & Sportsplex offers 100,000 square feet of sports and socializing space, including its impressive NHL-sized, year-round ice rink. Public skating sessions (valued at $9, with skate rental valued at $3 on Friday nights and weekends) last two hours and are scheduled almost daily. Because rink guards are on duty for the Sportsplex's highly attended public glide-fests, you can tuck the eyes on the back of your head snugly into a winter cap and still feel safe about bringing the whole family. Ice skating is a great way to stay active and healthy without using fancy exercise contraptions (bags of rocks, bags of corn chowder, etc.). Put those neglected leg muscles to use and burn calories while having a blast mimicking your favorite skating champs such as Elena Dementenova, Isaac Dementenova, or Russell Dementenova. Purchase multiple Groupons to plan a slippery escape with friends, or use up to four yourself to master Mighty Duck maneuvers before tryouts.

From Mouseketeer to multifaceted entertainer, Britney Spears has seared dance floors throughout her career with infectious sonic shrapnel while soothing countless ears scarred by the sound of exploding chalkboards.

At Kona Skate Park, smooth concrete undulates, dips, and banks like a frozen ocean. Skaters navigate those contours armed with helmets and bags of tricks such as kickflips and ollies. After zigging and zagging around cement bowls and valleys, they grab some air on the ramps and half-pipes. Street skating obstacles such as low wooden boxes and steps provide opportunity for slick grinds and rail slides.

The park opened in the late 1970s, and all of its elements, including the verts protruding from the concrete basins, are infused with history. Kona Skate Park was the original meeting place for legends such as Tony Alva and Rodney Mullen, and today it's the site of burgeoning skateboarders. To nurture the talents of those future stars, instructors lead lessons and camps geared toward kids of all skill levels.
