Happening Now at Gaylord National Resort: ICE! Christmas

If you’ve never seen a palace made of ice before, you have to head to ICE! Christmas at the Gaylord National Resort, because it’s pretty much the next best thing. A flagship holiday event at all Gaylord National Resort properties, this year’s ICE! Christmas theme at the National Harbor property is “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”! Over 2 million pounds of colorful ice creations will take over the hotel now through Dec. 20.

The event is open to the public not only guests and tickets can be purchased online and there are discounts for military and Marriott Bonvoy members. Entry will get you a self-guided tour that will take approximately 15-30 minutes, and then access to fun things like a two-story ice slide and nativity scene. Head to the Cocoa Shoppe in the hotel afterward to warm up after your experience with a sweet cup of hot chocolate. It’s definitely not just for kids, so get it on your calendar this holiday season!
