Santa Claus–Lincoln Discovery Trail
World-famous Santa Claus, Indiana is known for its famous namesake and Holiday World theme park. It’s a popular destination for family fun, especially during the holidays. The town of Santa Claus invested in a plan for a 5-mile, multi-use trail to connect Santa Claus, Indiana and Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial as part of the American Discovery Trail. Landstory was responsible for developing the trail themes, including Lincoln boyhood heritage, Santa Claus culture and family entertainment. The trail design includes a trailhead, roadway crossing, node design and sustainable design elements including native plants, native stone and historic and interpretive ‘storytelling’ opportunities. The project is slated for construction in 2018.
