A Fairy Tale Ice Castle

A friend recently asked me how I always know about the super cool things happening in our neighborhood.  The first thought that came to my mind was our different amounts of community interest and involvement.  I take advantage of every service our city has to offer and many many times they are not only amazing, but also free.

The second thought that came to mind was this blog.  A Local Wander is all about exploring close to home or off the beaten tourist path. It's how I provide great opportunities for my family and how I can share them with all of you.  Every once in awhile an opportunity comes along that boils over even my cool-ness scale.  That's what I'm sharing with you today!


If you live in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Utah, or Alberta, you have got to go explore in one of these larger-than-life frozen architectural wonders!  Because I want you to be as excited as me, let me share the exact description from the Ice Castle website...

Amazing ice features including archways, tunnels, slot canyons, ice slide, caverns,
 glacial waterfalls and a frozen throne. Kids and families squeezing, squishing, sliding, stomping and crawling through parts of the stunning Narnia Like display. Natural frozen ice tones during the day; colorful LED-lit ice set to music at night. Built by hand and made from more than 20,000,000 pounds of ice, the Ice Castles are READY to be explored!



Doesn't it sound amazing?!? Our family went last year and loved it! Each castle is an acre in size and will only last as long as the weather stays cold.  Here in Utah that should be March, but you'll want to go as soon as possible to make sure you don't miss out!

I'm taking my family again in a few weeks and will share photos and stories about this year's visit, but don't wait for that.  Click here to read about our visit from last year. And then check out the information for the Ice Castle near you...

 If you live in driving distance of one of these 4 castles, will you tag A Local Wander in a picture while you're there? I'd love to see how much fun you're having!
