Santa's Village

There were two Santa's Villages in California - today they are both closed. One was near Los Angeles, at Skyforest, near Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernardino Mountains. There was another Santa's Village near San Francisco, at 6348 Santa Cruz Highway, Santa Cruz, California.

A Santa's Village near Chicago, Illinois, in the Fox River Valley between Elgin and Dundee at the intersections of Highway 25 & 72, has
Santa's Slide, the oldest original Santa's Village ride left, dating back to 1959. Today the park is called Santa's Village AZoosment Park and has both rides and a petting zoo.

The following old postcards, brochures and other items of Santa's Village provide a great visual look back at Santa's Village history.
