If you’re up for about an hour’s drive, the Ice Castle in Woodstock, NH is a sight that can’t be missed. The Ice Castles are located in six US cities, and are created by professional ice artists, placing thousands of icicles by hand to build the spectacular displays. LED lights are frozen into the displays, making for a fairy tale nighttime experience. With carved tunnels, slides, frozen thrones, and fountains, your family won’t mind making the trip at all! Finish the perfect magical evening in your own cabin rented from Pinkham Vacation Rentals. Thaw your fingers and toes by a roaring wood stove with a cup of cocoa while snuggled up together in your dream vacation cabin. Click here for tickets and directions.
