The Bearded Blog - Santa Claus, Indiana
Spring is here…vacation is approaching…your calendar is marked…let the planning begin.
Here are some ideas during your trip to Santa Claus, Indiana, and Lincoln’s Indiana Boyhood Home.
Walk in Abe’s footsteps as you hike through the scenic trails at Lincoln State Park.
There are only eleven archabbeys in the world; be sure to tour the Saint Meinrad Archabbey during your visit.
Catch Lincoln Amphitheatre’s signature musical A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale, during June and July.
Mail a postcard from the only town in the world with the Santa Claus name. The statue also makes for a great photo op!
Try a decadent frozen hot chocolate at Santa’s Candy Castle.
Spring is a wonderful time to get outdoors and enjoy nature with your family. There are several places in Spencer County that are family favorites for doing just that.
With the flowers blooming and trees full of fresh green leaves, it's a great time to visit Saint Meinrad Archabbey. You can take a self-guided tour, or find a park bench to sit and enjoy the scenery. Stop by the gift shop before you leave to see what beautiful items they have.
A day trip to Lincoln State Park walking the trails and paddle boating in Lake Lincoln is a great family adventure. Walk around the Lincoln Bicentennial Plaza which celebrates Lincoln's 200th birthday and take a peek into the Nature Center featuring interactive exhibits for the entire family.
If you're up for a picnic, pack your basket and head to Lincoln Ferry Park. The park commemorates where Abraham Lincoln operated his ferryboat business on the Ohio River from Kentucky to Indiana. Don't forget the deviled EGGS!
