When I was a kid, I used to love going Roller Skating. My sister and I had our own pair of skates and my dad would take us to the roller rink at least once a month. My daughter has now discovered a love of roller skating and skates around the neighborhood whenever she can. If you have a kid who loves roller skating, skateboarding or just has an interest, there are plenty of places to take them in Orlando to get their skate on.
