Winter is one of our favorite seasons because we can stay indoors, snuggle up with our favorite blanket, and drink some raspberry hot cocoa. If you still love to explore and welcome the season with open arms, then we've got a treat for you. Ice Castles in Utah are opening soon and you'll be able to walk through sculptures made out of icicles. 

This frozen wonderland is one of the coolest things to see in the Beehive State. It's only open for a limited time during the winter season and opening dates are still being determined, as it's dependent on appropriate weather conditions. 

Narcity is following the updates closely and we will update this article when opening dates are released. 

Each castle and attraction are hand-placed by professionals. Many of them include LED-lit sculptures, thrones, hand-carved tunnels, slides, and more. 

The price of tickets varies between $13.99 and $22 per adult, depending on if you visit on a weekday or weekend. 

It's almost time to grab your friends for this wintry adventure. When you're there, you can indulge in some hot chocolate after you score a pic on the frozen throne.

Let your inner Stark out and pretend it's your kingdom for the taking or shall we say queendom. Or, take a ride down the slide. Either way, you'll have a blast (all pun intended). 

Since everything is made from ice, it's best to dress warmly. We recommend wearing waterproof clothing and winter boots! 

If you are visiting the castles during the day, it's possible that ice will melt a bit and the ground may become slippery, so plan accordingly. 

This is one of the best places to bring your SO. The cold weather makes holding hands, hugging, and cuddling a must. We love the idea of snuggling up to our boo on a wintry day.

Whether you love the season from indoors or prefer to experience it firsthand, this attraction is one of the most enchanting ones around.
