Tis The Season To Visit NH's New & Improved Santa's Village

Dina Fantegrossi ·

Ever since the early 1950s, Santa's Village in Jefferson, New Hampshire has been delighting children and filling families with the Christmas spirit. Not only is the park still going strong, it has tons of new features and attractions so it's even better than you remember! 

Bring the kids to visit Santa in his very own home! Most of the time he can be found relaxing in his big green rocking chair - unless it's lunchtime or his 3 p.m. milk and cookies break.

And don't forget to say hello to Comet, Cupid and the rest of the reindeer. Buy them a healthy snack or just give them a pat on the head before checking out the exciting rides.

The park offers 23 kid-friendly rides, most of which have a Christmas theme. "The Little Drummer Boy" is the park's version of Disney's teacups, while "The Chimney Drop" is a much milder version of a freefall tower.

Other family favorites include "Rudy's Rapid Transit Coaster" and "The Great Humbug Adventure."

The Elf University Elfabet Game is a scavenger hunt that takes you all over Santa's Village. If weather permits, the whole family can have a blast hunting down Santa's elves. 

Those who manage to find all 26 (or less, Santa isn't too picky!) can head back to Elf University to receive a special prize!

Santa's Village is a magical experience for kids of all ages as well as a beloved New England institution. Enjoy it with your family this holiday season!

The park is open every weekend throughout December with Saturday hours from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday hours from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
