santahat We Went to Santa Claus, Indiana! (Pictures Included)

Snow-in-Texas and I went to Santa Claus, Indiana last week.

Here are some pictures from our vacation:

Santa Claus, Indiana Photo Album

There is a picture of the cemetery in Santa Claus, Indiana. It's not meant to be morbid, it's just part of the town.

Actually, I particularly like the cemetery one; the fact it's named Santa Claus Cemetery kind of cheers the place up!!!

Jeff, I bet we could get a group discount at Santa's Lodge! That is where St. Nicks Restaurant is at.

I think Lake Rudolph Campgrounds or Santa's Lakeside Cottages would be more fun to stay at. They have plenty of cabins and it is right on a lake. All rooms are fully decorated!

You are right, Maureen, it does cheer up the cemetery a bit more with Santas name on it!

I read that lake rudolph built 25 cabins this year and they plan on building another 25 for next year. So they should have plenty of room for all of us.
