Okay, so it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but if you and your kids are already starting to think about Santa, elves and reindeer, then you may want to pay a visit to one of these Christmas-themed hotels and amusement parks. Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh…nearly every day of the year.
The Inn at Christmas Place (Pigeon Forge, TN): You and your kids will love this Christmas-themed hotel, which features loads of holiday decorations, even Christmas trees in the two-room suites. Enjoy free continental breakfast with character visits seven days a week. As a bonus, come to the lobby on Thursday and Sunday nights between June and December to hear Santa sing and play his guitar.
Santa’s Lodge (Santa Claus, IN): Every day is a holiday at Santa’s Lodge, which offers year-round holiday décor throughout the lodge. Even better, the hotel is just one mile from Holiday World, an amusement park that features a special Christmas section with Rudolph’s Reindeer Ranch and Kringle’s Kafé (open May through October).
Santa’s Village (Jefferson, NH): For Christmas fans, Santa’s Village is a must. This Christmas-themed amusement park is open during the summer and on select weekends from September through December. Take your picture with Santa, feed the reindeer cookies at the barn, catch a show at the Jinglebell Jamboree, and of course, enjoy the rides, like the Santa’s Express Train and the Skyway Sleigh.
