Ice Castles Minnesota

Ice Princess coatLate Winter Fun at the Ice Castles

Temps are finally warming up a little bit, so it’s time to take advantage of all things winter before they disappear. If you haven’t had the chance to see them yet. Ice Castles Minnesota have extended their open dates through March 14th, so there’s still time to get out there. (Not from the Twin Cities? There are also castles in New Hampshire, Vermont and Utah!)

Ice CastlesThe ice castles are build with icicles, so it looks rustic and natural. It’s not a palace made of ice blocks–it has an organic feel with a waterfall and tunnels and slides for the kids.

Ice Castles MinnesotaThe ice castles are a great photo opportunity all around. I’ve seen some amazing senior photos and family portraits done here. A young lady was getting Quincenara photos taken. She looked amazing in her Elsa-blue gown, but bare shoulders in 20 degrees? No thanks! I went with an ice blue coat and jumbo scarf instead.

Picture yourself here! A great photo opportunity to play Queen of the ice castles by sitting on the ice throne! (Caution: cold. Duh.)

      Hi Lisette! I bought the coat at Target actually. It’s sold out online but you could try some of their stores? I linked to one in the same color from H&M in the post. Hope that helps!

    This is WONDERFUL. I’ve never been to an ice castle before but I’d love to go one day. Though I’d rather be under at least 5 layers of sweaters.

      You’ll love it when you get to go! And yes, five sweaters is about the right amount 😉

  1. […] Don’t you just adore winter sweaters? There are so many cute ones this season with little knitted patterns such as snowflakes or animals. I think it reminds me of my childhood snowsuit and sweaters from the 80s/90s. Since starting The Pink Paperdoll, quite a few people have asked me if they can wear fair isle all winter. I suppose I am kind of an expert on sweaters, after nearly three decades living in the north and two winters literally working in a castle made of ice. […]
