Skating areas are plentiful in Louisville.

Whether you like to skateboard, ride your BMX or rollerblade, it can be difficult to find a city that is accommodating, especially with so few places to skate freely. Luckily, plenty of places throughout the country give some skating options that can fill your need for a rush and help you adjust to the new area. There are places to skate in just about any city, but some areas stand out more than others. If you find your skating heaven, it could be smart to grab all of your moving containers and ship off to that city.

Cleveland
One of the top places in the country for skate parks is Cleveland. The Ohio city is the home of Ray's MTB Park which is a sizable BMX park. It is indoors, which gives you an opportunity to ride no matter what the weather is like outside. This can be a great if you have an itch to ride and the weather isn't perfect outside.

The city is also in the process of constructing a large outdoor park for skateboarding that will open this year. This can make it easier for many people who want a option of riding during the summer in a safe environment.

Louisville
If you plan to move to Kentucky, you may have access to another famous skate park. The local government controls the Louisville Extreme Park, which has 40,000 square feet of outdoor skating area. The park has been around for more than 10 years, and is located downtown, so it not only has a long history, but also is easy to find. There are plenty of different ramps, bowls and pipes that make it quite a unique park.

Oceanside, California
Southern California is a place where skating has been king for decades. If you want to go to one of the top places for skaters in the country, then heading out to Oceanside State Park may be a good plan. The city is in the greater San Diego area, and the park has been around since the early 2000s. This park could be a good place to start, but don't let it limit you. There are other parks in the area such as Libby Lake Park, Melba Bishop Park and John Landes Park. Additionally, the city plans to add more in the future, so you don't ever have to get bored of skating venues.

Henderson, Nevada
If you plan to head to Las Vegas, nearby Henderson has a sizable number of skate parks that may be exactly what you are looking for. It doesn't matter if you prefer to skateboard, rollerblade or ride your BMX, as all of these are allowed in these areas. There are currently six parks in Henderson, all managed by the city. Anthem Hills Park is one of these options, and it has more than 50 acres of recreation areas, so even if you get tired of skating, there are certainly things to do in the area.

Philadelphia
Moving to the Philadelphia area could give you plenty of options when it comes to skate parks. The city has four skate parks in the Philadelphia area, including Woodward, Title 10, FDR and Carmella. However, the options don't stop there. There are actually more than 20 in the Greater Philadelphia area, so you have many choices, especially if you want to take a drive. Check out some of the local options, and if you get adventurous, grab some friends and look at the many other areas in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
