From: Chicago Urban History The White City Roller Rink is the finest, coolest, cleanest, and best managed skate palace in the world. Two sides are entirely made up of windows, which, when opened, make the rink practically an open-air pavilion; sunshine and excellent ventilation, the two most important health factors, are thus assured. It is a mecca for Chicago's best skaters and is the home of the greatest skating club, the White City Roller Club, known from coast to coast for its size, pep and for the brilliant events conducted under its auspices. Over 6,000 skaters registered. Maxham's Band, playing at the Roller Rink every afternoon and evening, is causing much comment from the skaters by virtue of its splendid music and skating tempo.

Roller skates can be used in many places. Outdoors, roller skates can be used on side walks, walking paths and at skate parks. Indoors, roller skates can be used at roller rinks or other venues with flat floor surfaces.
They are both good for health and pretty easy after lots of practice. The only difference is that in ice-skating you can only skate in ice rinks, while roller-skates have specially designed indoor rinks and you can skate outdoors. But not on ice.
