I thought going to Grapevine, TX in the middle of December would be a great opportunity to escape the snow and cold of the northern Michigan winter. The joke was a bit on me since the cold and ice followed me all the way south and dumped a great big ice storm in the area. We dubbed it Icemaggedon. It did, however, provide some really pretty photos. Of course, the ice outside wasn’t the only ice that Grapevine had to offer. The ICE! exhibit at the Gaylord Texan Resort has huge colorful displays of ice carvings each year that are worth the trip.

ICE! is created from 2 MILLION POUNDS ice and includes hand-carved sculptures and an ice slide! The colored ice is carved by 40 ice sculptors from China that spend a month carving and creating delightful scenes.

HOW TO DRESS FOR GAYLORD TEXAS ICE

It is a balmy 9 degrees inside the ICE! exhibit. Calf-length, hooded winter coats are made available to wear during the visit and are available in all sizes including children and infants. The coats were so warm and cozy that I wanted to bring mine back home to northern Michigan.

WHAT DOES GAYLORD TEXAS ICE COST?

Yes, I may be from northern Michigan, but I’m not a fan of cold weather. I put the ICE! coat on over my other coat and also had boot, gloves and a scarf. 9 degrees is cold, but the exhibit is so awesome that it’s worth being a bit chilly to enjoy the works of art.
