What's the most magical Christmas event in Indiana?

Here in the Hoosier State, we go *big* for the holidays. We don't just have a magical Christmas event; we have an entire magical Christmas town: Santa Claus, Indiana! That's right; Indiana has a town named after Kris Kringle himself, and every year, it transforms into a Christmastime wonderland that you simply will not find anywhere else in the Midwest. It's a truly magical place, and you'll feel like you've stepped into a Hallmark holiday movie. There are countless Christmas-centric shenanigans to get yourself and the kids into, and we have no doubt you'll never want to leave. Every day is Christmas in Santa Claus, Indiana, the jolliest place on earth!

Are there any Christmas trains in Indiana?

There's really nothing more delightful than bundling up and setting out on an epic holiday adventure on the open rails. Luckily for us winter lovers, there's a special holiday train in Indiana waiting for us to board before it takes us on a thrilling, chilly adventure through Indiana's beautiful winter landscapes. This festive train was built in 1956, and ever since, it's been a bastion of holiday cheer. You'll want to bring the kids for the Christmas Caboose Ride; it's a short, 35-minute adventure to the North Pole. All aboard to holiday cheer!

What's the very best Christmas light display in Indiana?

The above list of amazing lights displays features some of our favorites, and if you're going to ask us to pick just one, it would have to be in good, old Santa Claus, Indiana, at the Land of Lights. This drive-thru display is perfect for the entire family, offering lots of festive (and warm!) fun in the most delightful environment. The lights are epic, too; the route is 1.2 miles and features over 300 different pieces -- some as large as 30 feet tall! It's held rain or shine; and if you're lucky, you might even get a little snowfall during your excursion!
