Santa's Wonderland 2021 Delights Holiday Fans in College Station

I was one of the lucky ones to experience the 2021 version of Santa's Wonderland in College Station. In fact, I was there on the second night of operation and it was packed with those who wanted an early touch of the holidays. Our group did take the horse carriage ride through the lights and it was excellent. We also went on a chilly night to make it more festive. I highly recommend if you want to take the road trip.
