Silly question but I am clueless: where to skip rope/jump rope in the US?!?

Many/most Americans love running. I love skipping. I'd like to jump rope/skip rope outdoors in a quiet place and not look terribly odd while I do it. I have never ever seen an individual skip rope outdoors around where I live and therefore it makes me feel as if its an odd thing to do here, similar to walking to places and not having a car; though I understand that the latter varies depending on where you are in the US. Where I live, its pretty darn odd (I have done that anyway and I am sure looked like an idiot in the process as well). Also, I live in a building so skipping in the backyard is out. Not interested in gyms either, so please no such suggestions.
If you are in the US and you love to skip rope outdoors as well, where do you do it (preferably without drawing craze attention)? I am dying to start skipping (I haven't done that for years now!!). But where, o' where? Ideas/advice/suggestions needed ASAP.
Thanks in advance!
