The Ice Castles are a Utah original, starting in 2008, and has since grown to a worldwide phenomenon. This year, there will be thousands of LED lights embedded in the ice, music, and 2 acres of breathtaking ice sculptures to view.
1. They’re stunning
Not only are these ice castles amazingly beautiful to see in the daytime, but at night they’re out of this world.
2. They’re a fun winter activity for the whole family
If you have a daughter, you can bet she’ll be singing songs from Frozen while you’re there.
3. They’re the only ice castles in the western United States
The other ice castles are in the eastern part of the country, but Utah is the only place to see these incredible ice structures in the west.
4. There are early bird deals
Tickets prices depend on age, but through Nov. 27, you can get an early bird discount of 40% off. Just visit icecastles.com for more information.
