Holiday Hotspots Make Christmas Road Trips Merry

DETROIT (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Holiday road travel can be annoying, but not if there are plenty of fun pit stops along the way.

According to American Road magazine editor Becky Repp, the holidays are great time to pack up the family and hit the open road.

She says there are hidden hotspots all the way to Grandma’s house including Santa’s Candy Castle located in the town of Santa Claus, Indiana.

The castle was built in 1935 and includes a toy village, Santa’s workshop, and free candy and admission.

Continuing on your trek is an amusement park called the North Pole in New York. The Christmas-themed stop includes the Candy Cane Express, a train you can actually ride.

Repp also says that a good way to keep the kids busy during a road trip is to look for the seven giant roadside peanuts strung along America’s highways.

The goobers can be found in Georgia, Texas, Oklahoma, and Alabama, and include a peanut in the likeness of Jimmy Carter and one that resembles Elvis.
