Shack Up in Santa Claus, Ind.

Who said vacations are just for summer? Winter wanderlust is a real thing and we happen to know of the perfect place to shack up for a cozy, fun-filled weekend – the town of Santa Claus, of course! Don’t wait until the weather warms up to get out of the house, shake the seasonal gloom and see what awaits you now.

to Stay:

Santa’s Lodge makes for the perfect wintry getaway spot. You’ll be able to swim the seasonal gloom away in the indoor pool or warm up in the hot tub. There’s also a family-friendly, Christmas-themed restaurant on site with home-style entrees you’ll love, including steaks and chicken.  A cozy bed, comfort food, and fun amenities are all at your fingertips at this lodge.


Where to Eat:

If you want to venture out for other dining options, there are plenty of local places that will satisfy your taste buds. Try the famous pork chops at New Boston Tavern or enjoy family dining at The Chateau for steaks, seafood, chicken, pizzas, and sandwiches — both just minutes away from Santa Claus, Indiana. View a complete list of nearby dining options here.  You’ll find Mexican cuisine, familiar chains you know and love, sweet treats, and more.


What to Do:

Although some of our local attractions and sites are seasonal, there are still plenty of places to see and things to do that are open throughout the winter months. Check out the printer-friendly flyer with the monthly hours each business is open.
