That was the only dissapointing thing about it that we couldn't hang around to see it at night. Otherwise it was cool seeing the place. We were on a bit of a tight schedule, we had to be back home to have time to get ready for the cruise. There were even times we weren't sure if we could make it to Santa Claus, especially when we hit a detour at the bridge going over the Ohio river, even with the GPS we had trouble navigating past that, but we made it and I am glad we did.

The Santa community is have a BIG deal in Santa Claus in April. I don't think that's a great time for a MMC meeting but I definitely agree on the place. We should think about doing a summertime get-together of sorts in a place like Santa Claus.

I have looked at their site and it's a beautiful place!

I agree! The town is very small but they have an amusement park and water park to visit for entertainment.

The lodge has the St. Nicks Restaurant that could accommodate a large group for dining. I went to the tourist center and the lady there told me that was the only restaurant with a Christmas theme.

The thing that surprised me is the Christmas store was not that big but it was nice!

It would be really nice to make this happen if we could all meet there!

I passed within fifteen miles of Santa Claus, IN on my way home from Chester, IL in 2009 and regret not detouring over to see it... even moreso, now... cool pictures!
