Ice Castles- Lincoln, NH

Outdoor travel is limited during the winter, and staying indoors can sometimes be the more preferred option by most.  But we have something for you guys that is absolutely worth putting on your snow pants for and getting outdoors!

Every year New Hampshire hosts the Ice Castle exhibit which is more than just a few ice sculptures on display. The Ice Castle is constructed by hand starting in November and will stay open from January through March (weather permitting).  There are several other castles scattered around the U.S. in areas like Utah, Vermont and Minnesota.  What’s fascinating about each of these locations, is that all of the Ice Castles are made entirely of ice, approximately 30,000,000 pounds worth!

The acre-sized Ice Castle opened up this year in Lincoln, New Hampshire.  Our photos are from last year’s exhibit at Loon Mountain.  Not only are the Ice Castles amazing to look at, they also have tunnels, hidden rooms, slides, and other fun, interactive features.  They are especially awesome at night, when the colorful LED lights are most vibrant, adding even more oohs & aahs to your Ice Castle adventure.

As you can imagine, these locations get packed over the weekends.  So we suggest you buy your tickets in advance.  There’s also a chance you can catch a deal on sites like Living Social and Groupon.  Be sure to add this one to your bucket list this winter!
