Located in Southern Indiana, Santa Claus started out as a small town known as Santa Fee with just 65 residents. Today, approximately 2,500 residents call Santa Claus, Indiana home, but the number of occupants rise dramatically during the summer, when more than one million visitors arrive to enjoy the sights and attractions of the area. Calling itself "America's Christmas Hometown," Santa Claus, Indiana is filled with holiday-themed attractions, shopping, outdoor recreation and lodging choices ready to welcome you and your family to the area.

Be sure to include the area's top attractions -- Holiday World & Splashin' Safari and the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial -- on your itinerary, but don't overlook the smaller sights like Frosty's Fun Center for a great family outing. The area also is home to a number of lakes and parks where families can get their quota of outdoor recreation, such as fishing, kayaking and hiking.
