It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love the holidays and I love Christmas On The Potomac! Have you done any of the amazing Christmas On The Potomac activities before? This has become one of my family’s favorite traditions. I have 4 can’t miss experiences at the Gaylord National to share with you…
This is the Gaylord National’s signature holiday attraction. This year they brought one of the most beloved Christmas classics to the DC area and created all of your favorite scenes out of ICE! It truly is incredible to see! If you have never been, this is a must holiday attraction. My family loved seeing Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts Gang all in ice form; two million pounds of ice sculptures and displays, that is!
All of your favorite scenes are here and larger than life. My favorite had to be Snoopy’s prize winning dog house and the gang singing carols around the tree! The sculptures are so bright and colorful, my kids were excitedly pointing and taking pictures throughout.
Of course, you can’t go to ICE! without going down the ICE! slides! We sure did!
