Utah is known for having "The Greatest Snow on Earth"...well it has some pretty spectacular ice to boot. :)

The sweet city of Midway is where you'll find the Ice Castles! New ice sculptures are built up annually--giving a new experience each year with bigger and more unique features than the last.

There are now a few ice castles in other states, but the first was created here in Utah.

We bundled up and explored it with our children last year, twice actually, and loved it. Out in the crisp winter air, we walked through frosted halls and under icy ceilings. And in the evenings the ice is lit up with different colors, taking the magic to another level.

Our little ones loved finding our favorite snowman Olaf (I wonder if he'll be there this year too?!) and although they didn't quite want to try the ice tunnel-slide, we watched other kids go down, again and again, with huge smiles on their faces. :)

Midway is such a gem, so whether it's your destination or you are just passing through, you won't regret stopping to explore the Ice Castles. Just know there may be a long ticket line...but it's because everyone wants in on this unique experience!
