The Bearded Blog - Santa Claus, Indiana
March brings us spring days, the return of a family-friendly attraction, and takes us just a little closer to the summer season.
The horses will be ready to take you on the new and improved trails at Santa’s Stables, which opens on March 22, 2015. This is a perfect opportunity if you are looking for a spring break activity; be sure to call in advance to make a reservation. Read more about what’s new in 2015 at Santa’s Stables here.
Kringle Haus Werkstatt also returns from a winter hiatus. Stop by for a warm cup of coffee or treat yourself to one of the many delectable pastry selections. They are also stocked with creative home furnishings, jewelry, and more, so plan to browse the shop as well.
Don’t forget about the Monkey Hollow Winery tasting room located inside Kringle Haus Werkstatt. Sample a variety of wine (blueberry is among customer favorites) made from vines right here in Spencer County. You can also check out their home location in nearby St. Meinrad.
As the weather warms up, hit the trails at Lincoln State Park and Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial for some outdoor fun. Leave your cabin fever behind as you walk or bike the Ohio River Scenic Byway. And be sure to make a visit to Christmas Lake Golf Course when you hear the great outdoors calling your name.
Los Dos Charros, a thriving Mexican restaurant in Dale, Indiana (less than ten minutes from Santa Claus, Indiana) made some major changes when the new year began. Lupita, one of the owners, talks about the upgrades in this conversation.
Talk about transformation! The new Los Dos Charros location offers customers a fantastic dining experience. Lupita, can you describe the new place?
We are very excited to have moved to a new location. The building and the setup is perfect!
The new location has all new equipment in the remodeled kitchen. We added an additional restroom and a small sit-in bar where you may wait for your to-go order and have a drink.
We will also be adding more tables to accommodate more seating for our customers.
What have customers been saying about the new and improved restaurant?
Everyone is happy about the move. It was something every customer who has dined with us knew needed to happen to benefit the business. Customers love the outcome of the decor and how nice and clean it looks.
What menu items would you recommend for first-time visitors?
We have a lot of items that are very popular with our customers! A couple that come to mind are: Chicken on the Beach (which I would say is the most asked for item), Jose Special, Tilapia Veracruzana, and Fajitas. Those are just a few.
Visit Los Dos Charros at 560 S. Washington St. Dale, Indiana, next to Dollar General and Holiday Foods. Find other area dining recommendations here.
On Tuesdays, members of our tourism family head to the super-nice conference room at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort for what we call “Lunch and Learn.”
For one hour, we watch a presentation based on trending social media topics. We had the opportunity to learn more about Google a few weeks ago.
