Santa's Village Azoosment Park, jolly St. Nick's summer home (he's around daily), just got more fun with expanded activities offered when it opens on Mother's Day. What's new is Jed's Country Cruisers (you can drive around in a gas-powered antique car, a four-seater), the Country Carousel, SVFD Engine #3 ride and the Parakeet Paradise aviary.
Why go: Of course for the rides, shows, petting zoo and family together time, but it's Santa in the summer!
Reconsider: You don't want to have anything to do with words that bring thoughts of December.
