Ice Skating Spots in Kansas City

When it comes to fun family outings in the winter, our options can be somewhat limited. Sledding is a blast but some winters we have a serious snow shortage. Fortunately, there are ice skating rinks in Kansas City to enjoy in the winter months.

I'm Julia and I live in Olathe with my husband of 14 years, my 8 and 4 year old daughters, and a sweet old blind pug we call Boopers. I’m a social worker turned SAHM and love Dr. Pepper, thunderstorms, and talking to other adults. I hate coffee, diet culture, and washing dishes. I'll talk your ear off about the best local parks and which restaurants have wronged me by changing their long-standing menu items. I try to walk the line between knowing a lot of stuff and not being a know-it-all. Some days I'm better than others.
