Celebrating Our Local 2022 Tripadvisor Award Winners

Earning the designation of “Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Winner” is no small feat. It means that a business goes above and beyond for its guests to an experience that creates lasting memories. An experience that makes them want to come back again and again! 

Officially, Tripadvisor describes a Travelers Choice winner as a business that “consistently earns great reviews from travelers and is ranked within the top 10% of properties on Tripadvisor.” And three businesses in the Santa Claus, Indiana, area have achieved this ranking for 2022.
