It is definitely winter and it is cold in Minnesota! That does not mean we cannot go outside and enjoy Winter to the fullest! The cool thing about the 365 blog, we try to give you the cool (literally) and unique things that are going on in the Twin Cities. This is one of those things…
In Eden Prairie, they have constructed an ice castle and they open up today for the next couple months! Yep…just like the ones you saw in Disney’s Frozen! In fact, they even have ice princesses who show up and sing and everything. Awesome right. Here is how you can get there!
From the East or the West: Exit Route 212 at Eden Prairie Road and go NORTH. Take the FIRST left onto E. Miller Parkway. Continue into the park, following the signs to the Ice Castle.
