Want to know how to experience snow in Florida? This amazing exhibit is just a short drive from Sarasota in Orlando. Two million pounds of ice are transformed into every imaginable Christmas icon at Marriott’s Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. Yes, ice in Florida! — 36 truckloads, to be exact. Beginning in November and continuing into the first week of January, ICE is a star attraction of the Florida holiday season. This winter-season event features literally tons of ice sculptures that have been hand-carved by artists from Harbin, China, and depict scenes of holiday celebrations from around the world. The shaped, cut, illuminated, and often colored ice takes over a large portion of the resort’s convention center. To give you an idea of the size and scope of the attraction, it boasts 1,500 fluorescent tubing lights frozen within three different types of ice: clear glass-like crystal ice; white snow-pack-like ice, and colored ice. During your walking tour, you are literally surrounded by ice sculptures depicting characters and scenes from the holiday season crafted a series of themed areas. Click here for more information and tickets.
