Santa Claus, Indiana is clearly the best place to celebrate the Christmas season with your family. I love how everything is Santa themed year-round, but there is something extra special, and extra bright beginning in November.

Santa Claus Land of Lights – Family Christmas Light Adventure

The Santa Claus Land of Lights is a 1.2 mile Drive-Through Family Christmas Light Adventure located next to Holiday World at Sun Outdoors Lake Rudolph.

Santa Claus Land of Lights will open for its 14th season on Thursday, November 24, 2022 (Thanksgiving evening). What could be better than driving through 1.1 miles of amazing Christmas lights, in the town named after Mr. Claus...?
