"IT IS A FAMILY THING" Santa Claus by miner

Santa Claus Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 32 photos

Yes ,Virginia ,there is a Santa Clause.And I saw him eating a pizza at the Kringle restaurant.
Actually in Southern Indiana there is a villiage called Santa Clause, Indiana.This small community would probably go unnoticed except for a theme park formerly called Santa Clause Land.Over the last several years this little amusemaent has evolved into one of the finest theme parks in the U.S.Pictured is the the Big Guy,my mom,my daughter, and yours truly. I am trying to make points for next year!!

    Hello Joe! You've been cheated! The one and only Santa Claus lives in Korvatunturi, Finland and has his workshop in Rovaniemi. Happy birthday from Finland!

    Santa has left the North Pole and moved to Indiana! Fun page! I bet you were so proud to see your daughter performing on stage. I would LOVE to ride the Banshee. :-) ~Elaine~

    Hi Miner, good info here. I've been through Santa Claus a couple of times but the theme park was closed when I was there in winter. Thanks ! Stephen

    Glad to learn about Santa Claus. I'd seen it on the map but didn't know anything about it. I bet my young niece would like it there.
