Gaylord Texan is a luxury resort located just minutes from DFW Aiport in Grapevine, Texas. Grapevine is the Christmas Capitol of Texas featuring more than 1400 events in just 40 days. My favorite Christmas event of the season is ICE! at The Gaylord Texan!
Lonestar Christmas and ICE! featuring Christmas Around the World brings the holidays to life with 2 million Chistmas lights, 2 million pounds of ice, 2 million pounds of real Texas snow, 15,000 ornaments, 5600 feet of garland, 2300 holiday wreaths, and a 54-foot Christmas tree! Everything is bigger in Texas, even Gaylord Texan’s Lonestar Christmas celebration!
ICE! featuring Christmas Around The World is created by master sculptors from Harbin, China. These artisans have developed a special recipe to create ice used to create scenes of holiday traditions all around the world. During your visit to ICE! you will be provided with a parka. Button up, bring hats and gloves to keep warm as you walk through the 9° blissful cold winter wonderland!
Each ice sculpture is impressive! Kids of all ages are reminded of Santa Claus checking his list to see who has been naught or nice!
