This place not only has two rinks to accommodate the normal public ice skating, but also to accommodate the professional team, the Capitals. They also have league games on the second rink. Prices are fair and it is easy to access through the mall

This place is so cool. We got to sit up close and personal to watch Caps practice, and stuck around for a juniors league game after. You can even wait out side for a chance to meet players!

If you live and breathe hockey this is a must visit. You will get a full-on hockey experience. Moreover, the capitals team store is in this location.

This is the Washington Capitals practice facility. The rinks are really well maintained. Plenty of restrooms, seating, food. You can rent skates and skate during open times. The observation areas are great! I highly recommend. There's plenty of parking as well!
