Cabela’s in Noblesville has turned a section of their store into Santa’s Wonderland. It is the perfect place to play, craft, and visit with the big man in the red suit and it’s all FREE. Walk into the store, turn left, and go all the way down to where the boats are usually on display. You can’t miss the log cabin with Santa’s rocking chair on the porch.
This year, Santa will be at Cabela’s from November 5-December 24. The store recommends reserving a time for your visit.

The store offers areas for your kids to play with the toys they have for sale. There are Lincoln Logs, play dirt, and more for them to test out. Also in this area is a letter-writing station where children can draft their wish lists for Santa. You can also enjoy a free Christmas craft area and a duck shooting gallery. When you visit with Santa, you get to take home a free 4×6 photo of him with your kids in an adorable setting complete with reindeer (Granted they are Cabela Reindeer so they don’t require much food – wink, wink). Paid photo packages are also available.
My kids loved playing with the toys and the crafts they had were really high quality. A trip to Cabela’s to visit the aquariums and look at the animal displays is fun any time of the year. I enjoyed getting a little extra shopping done and you can’t beat a FREE photo with Santa.
