Cedar Hill Roller Rink has been winning the hearts of wheel wizards along its smooth indoor track for more than five decades. This cozily classic, indoor rink was born in 1956, the same year that Dwight D. Eisenhower was reelected after Adlai Stevenson openly declared his preference for skateboarding. With today's deal, you and a friend can enjoy this traditional American pastime during open-skate hours (Fridays from 8 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.), with included four-wheeled skate rental to set you up for sleek speeding. Whirl around the rink, marveling at your sudden grace and fluidity, or impress a date with feats of backward skating—an oh-so-integral part of the hockey-season mating dance.

Cedar Hill Roller Rink
In 1956, the owners of Cedar Hill Roller Rink stuck a sky-blue sign on the edge of Main Street. With only the word "Skating" displayed in retro block lettering, the sign called out to travelers, urging them to stop inside for classic four-wheeled entertainment. Today, the rink's hardwood surface provides smooth gliding after five decades upkeep, upbeat music, and upstanding gentlemen who know how to ask a gal to dance despite having untimely sweaty palms.
