Driving east on 64 when we saw the exit for Santa Claus, Indiana and had to investigate. Great Photo Op with the Santa statue out front. Next door was a Christmas shop full of ornaments. Quick fun stop!

Keep in mind this is a real Post Office. For a small town they ahndle a lot of mail. When we stopped it, I mailed a letter home just so I could have a letter postmarked from Santa Claus.

I'd like to properly be able to review this post office, but they were closing when we got there. Check the times to make sure you don't miss it.
