The Venue: Pettit National Ice Center, Milwaukee.

The Adventure: As a United States Olympic Team training site, Milwaukee’s Pettit National Ice Center has hosted speed-skating stars like Bonnie Blair and Apolo Anton Ohno. But the arena also operates one of the largest skating schools in the nation. Here, on several days each month, first-timers can rent long-blade speed skates and lace up to sample a sport in which experts whiz along at 40 mph or more on flat ice.
