As the holiday season draws near, the town of Santa Claus is receiving more national recognition. The Spencer County town is included in POPSUGAR.com’s list of 15 holiday travel destinations for Christmas lovers.
The entertainment and lifestyle website cites the town’s post office, which receives more than 13,000 letters to Santa, as well as the Santa Claus Land of Lights and Santa’s Candy Castle. The Spencer County Visitors Bureau says the town is getting prepared for its Christmas celebrations, some of which begin this weekend.
"As a Christmas lover myself, I think it’s wonderful to see the town nationally recognized as a top destination for the Christmas season," says Melissa Brockman, executive director of the Spencer County Visitors Bureau. “It’s a such wonderful time of the year for families to make lasting memories."
In addition to Santa Claus, the list includes destinations such as Branson, Missouri, Santa Fe, New Mexico and Garrison, North Dakota. You can view the full list by clicking here.
