The town of Santa Claus in Spencer County was one of six finalists of the “Most Fun” category, selected from over 600 locales in the Best of the Road contest sponsored by USA Today and Rand McNally. The determination was made by five teams of travelers who journeyed from New York City to Los Angeles from June 23 to July 15 each visiting six towns in an assigned category: most beautiful, most patriotic, friendliest, most fun, and best food, as well as points of interest en route.
Santa Claus, along with the other finalists is highlighted on the Rand McNally website and in the 2013 Rand McNally Road Atlas, as well as on USA Today’s Travel site.
“We are so excited that Santa Claus, Indiana, is one of the finalists in the Best of the Road contest,” says Melissa Wilkinson, Executive Director of the Spencer County Visitors Bureau. “We’re proud to be considered one of the “Most Fun” towns in America.”
Melissa notes that Spencer County is home to nationally known attractions such as Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari, Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort and Lincoln’s Indiana Boyhood Home with national and state parks. The Visitors Bureau encourages guests to stay overnight and visit the many attractions, shops, and restaurants.
