By Samantha Mucha

Do you and your sweetheart enjoy looking at art, or even making your own pieces?  If so, take date night to the next level this winter by visiting an ice sculpting festival.  These events typically happen near ski resorts or state parks. Look online to find out if there is one near you.  If you and your significant other want to travel and have the budget, make a weekend out of it.  It’s a breathtaking experience that you will want to see at least once in your lifetime.

The art of ice sculpting is incredible; talented artists are able to turn a block of ice into castles and mystical creatures of every sort, as well as hundreds of other one-of-a-kind designs.  Talk about a romantic winter wonderland.  Spending the day walking around one of these festivals can be exciting as a couple.  Get up close and check out the intricate details of the masterpieces.  Make sure to take your video camera to capture the day for folks back home.

When you’re done being in awe of the fantastic artwork, find a cozy spot for dinner.  Since you will most likely be traveling, try a local restaurant in the area.  On your drive home share your favorite pieces with your mate and compare your thoughts.  If you and your beau plan to tie the knot one day, maybe you will stumble upon a design that can be incorporated into your own wedding theme.
