Best Place to Skate

TIE: Playland Skate Center; the Veloway

With birthday parties for big and little ones, Texas Rollergirls meets, skate lessons and sales, and weekly gatherings of middle schoolers, Austin's largest skating rink has something for everyone. While Playland covers fun, the Veloway in Southwest Austin offers something for the more serious skating set. Rollerbladers (and bikers) have been enjoying the 3.1-mile paved track through the scenic Hill Country since the Eighties. Rad!
