Ice might be the last thing you want to look at right now, but Frozen fans (and families looking to take a cool vacation) are gonna flip for the Ice Castles. By day, these evolving ice masterpieces located in Colorado, Utah, and New Hampshire include carved walking paths that lead visitors through towering glacial formations, caverns, archways, and maze-like tunnels. By night, millions of tons of ice are magically illuminated. Mother Nature can't take all the credit, though, because one of our favorite details of this secret spot is that it all started with a dad trying to create fun for his children during the Winter. Brent, a dedicated father, started with a simple DIY backyard ice rink for his kids, and he now has three locations and a patented method of creating ice towers, tunnels, and archways by using just icicles and water. It's a magical place, to say the least, so scroll down to see why you might want to make this your next family trip.
