Incentive Destinations: U.S. Towns Named Christmas

Sant'as workshop, Christmas, Michigan

According to Nuwire Investor, there are 100 U.S. towns with Christmas themed names including 4 named North Pole and 7 named after Santa. Most of them are small communities. There are also 5 U.S. towns named Christmas. I profiled one of them last year; today, let's look at 2 more.

Christmas, Michigan

In Christmas, Michigan, all of the stores and businesses have a Christmas theme. The town used to be the site of a Christmas gift and ornament factory. Today, Santa's Workshop is the perfect place for event planners to pick up Christmas decorations, figurines, and glass ornaments all year long. There are giant cut-outs of Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus and a North Pole Statue.

Set on 10 lakeside acres, Sunrise Bay Vacation Estate on Reindeer Trail is ideal for small to medium executive and team building retreats.

Noel, Louisiana

Noel is the French word for Christmas and, in French, Santa Claus is called "Pere Noel," translated Father Christmas. Dubbed "The Christmas City and Canoe Capital of the Ozarks", every year, the post office receives thousands of Christmas cards that it re-mails with its distinctive Christmas themed postmark. Accommodation in the area consists primarily of cabins and campgrounds that are perfect for wilderness-themed retreats.

Ozark Valley Weddings and Events is a century-plus-old barn that has been converted for weddings, picnics, and special events.
