I know you’re sitting there looking for something fun to do. I also know that you’re wanting to get in the Christmas spirit. And oh my goodness, look at you sitting there looking at your screen somewhere in Colorado. Wow. I have a recommendation for you!! Check out Ice at the Gaylord!
This is the second time my family has gone to see Ice at the Gaylord and we had a great time again! The first time my family visited the Gaylord, the theme was Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. All of the ice sculptures revolved around the story of Rudolph. Within the Gaylord’s Christmas village, they had a dedicated area that was kept at 9 degrees (if not colder) where we were immersed in the story of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. Super cute. And we had to wear these fun blue parkas while we went through the exhibit so we stayed nice and warm.
This year, Charlie Brown was the theme! So we got to see Snoopy, Lucy, Charlie Brown, and the gang. Some of the most iconic scenes of the Charlie Brown Christmas movie were displayed in ice. There was an ice slide in what would be Charlie Brown’s school auditorium. You could crawl through Snoopy’s dog house and take pictures. We really enjoyed it.
In the past when we visited the Gaylord, we stopped at one of their restaurants for dinner. The food was good even though there was a pretty long wait. This year, we decided to skip out on the food, but we enjoyed walking around the property and seeing all of their Christmas decorations. They have this giant Christmas tree in a beautiful open area that overlooks the mountains. They also have a really cozy, huge fireplace with giant stockings sitting over top of it. I love it honestly.
So if you’re looking for something fun to do, check out the Gaylord Resort and all it’s fun Christmas stuff. They have tubing, ice skating, a Cirque de Soleil show, and of course, the Ice exhibit thing with Charlie Brown that I talked about! We’ve had a good time and I think you’ll enjoy it all too. We actually went just after Thanksgiving so they’ve been running for a while and I think they keep Ice open through New Year’s Day at least!
