ICE Frost

The Ice village and slide are back at Gaylord National at National Harbor. The kids got a kick out of the new Jack Frost theme. The slides are always a hit. Be sure to grab some hot chocolate after before hopping on the carousel or decorating gingerbread cookies. Here’s more information on the exhibit which will be open through Christmas. You can get photos with Santa too.      ICE Frost
