Yesterday, I told you about our first day (of two) at Santa’s Village up in New Hampshire. As promised, here are some pictures from day two. Actually, that’s a lie because this first one is from day one – I just forgot to put it into yesterdays post. It’s the boys in front of the sign right in front of the entrance/exit of the park. I asked them to stand in front of it on our way out in case I forgot to take it the following day.
And speaking of posing – I took a whole bunch of pictures of the boys (including Chris) with the numerous statues around the park throughout the day. We take pictures at the same places every year, so it’s fun to look back and see them change year after year.
Our day was filled with LOTS of rides. It wasn’t particularly crowded, especially the second day, so they got to ride and re-ride (get off & ride again immediately) many of the rides. Actually, a few of them they rode 3 or 4 times in a row. I think their favorite of the day was the Himalaya. It went pretty fast – in circles – and they LOVED it.
Somehow I ended up on the carousel with them, but it worked out because I got to take a cute picture of them.
We had actually planned on heading up to Santa’s Village over Memorial Day weekend, but they got a freak snow storm that weekend and ended up closing, so this was a reschedule from that trip we’d planned. The boys had a blast this year, though, and are already talking about going back next year. They keep forgetting that they’re going to Disney in less than two months.
In addition to all the rides & the water park, Santa’s Village has several playgrounds, a splash pad (separate from the water park), lots of shows & live entertainment, quite a few restaurants/food stands and gift shops.
Tickets are $28.00 per person for anyone ages 4 to 62. Seniors are $26 per person and kids 3 & under are free. Santa’s Village is located
in the middle of nowhere at 528 Presidential Highway • Jefferson, NH.
And did I mention that they pipe in Christmas Carols all day long? That’s my favorite part.
