Beware of snakes. Santa's Land

I'm not sure what this once was, but now it's just a bunch of creepy, broken-down cabins with rattlesnake warning signs everywhere. Like many of the attractions on Route 66 it is a pull-over, so why not stop, but don't expect much.

Santa's Land has been abandoned for decades, preserved by the dry desert air.

I am usually not afraid to hop a fence for a good photo op, but the warning signs at this attraction were amazingly effective! With 60 years of holiday history here, we made the drive from Kingman, but Santa's Land is a bust and not worth the trek.

Agreed -- it only merits a brief stop if you're already driving between Vegas and Kingman.

For sale sign. Ruins of Santa's Land

Santa Town is now for sale.

Ripe for purchase before the holiday rush.

Santa Town

Deserted "Santa Town." A grouping of small white houses with red trimmed windows. 'Private property' signs and a gate. The flaking santa sign is still readable from the road.
