hi Joan!

We have a Santa's Village here in Ontario too...it's in Bracebridge and when I was a child we stopped there every summer on our way to visit relatives in the north. It looks very similar to your pictures...so much fun for children!

Hi Jo...It really is a magical place for little ones...I would imagine it is a common theme in lots of places! It's gorgeous country too!

Hi Joan, A seasonal reminder? 116 days until Christmas and the countdown begins. Guess I better get shopping soon, LOL. Actually I usually have already started by now. But I like the idea of the Santa's Village. What matter that the Spirit of Christmas is in our hearts year around, I like the idea. Now that would make for a kinder and gentler nation.

The White Mountains are really beautiful indeed. I love the close up picture of the Moose. Big ole bugger isn't he. The foliage colors are nothing short of God showing what a brilliant artist he is in the use of the color. Thanks for sharing this and I certainly impressed.

Joni,

We love the White Mountains.  It's getting close to "frost on the pumpkin!"

Now you've done it!  LOL  Gone and made me homesick for Grandpa's farm.  Just down the road in Jefferson Meadow.  I have many fond memories of that area.

Especially that hot-dog stand on the way to Berlin ....

Hi Joan!  How did I miss this place on my recent visit?  I bet it's more fun with snow though, so maybe I'll come back in the winter!

Oh how fun!! Because of your post, Santa's Village is going to experience an end of summer surge of business. They should give you a little bonus. ;-) GBU!

I love Santa's Village.  I went there as a child and I brought my children there.  I'm sure there will be visits with grandchildren in the future.  It is a wonderful place for memories to be made.

Joan, I have never heard of this place but it sounds just wonderful anytime of the year!  I am trying NOT to think about winter with these beautiful days we still have :)

Hi Shatz....It pretty far North. You'd have to have spent quite a bit more time!

I think you need to plan a longer visit then I can show all of you some great spots!

This would be such a fun trip for young kids! I would have been too excited for words as a kid, to see where Santa lives!

Rich...my son loved it ...but even more he loved 6 Gun City which was down the road. He wasn't allowed to play with guns but there the kids get a holster etc. and get deputized to chase Bank robbers. It's adorable!
