By far my favorite spot is a simple yet beautiful reminder of the magic of winter. This sim, North Pole Village & Santa’s Workshop, shows each and every visitor the simple beauty of a fresh blanket of snow. I had to, of course, try to find the most recognizable icon of winter. Santa was an elusive one but I think I found the real one, complete with reindeer and sleigh. I snapped a couple shots of him as he was tuning up his sleigh to make sure that his once a year trip goes smoothly. I strolled around for a bit window shopping but was anxious to continue my exploration.
After leaving the North Pole, I headed out for the Winter Festival at Aero Pines Park. I discovered ice skating, skiing and snow tubing which were the most fun I have had in a long time. Twists and turns at a break neck speed, who wouldn’t love that?
After all that chilly excitement, I decided that I wanted to take a break and enjoy a nice cozy cafe. Christmas at the North Pole features a most cozy pub right on the corner of North and Pole. Santa is your barman and it’s all very snug.
I reluctantly left the cozy chair next to the old fashioned jukebox to embark on another expedition to the Winter Scenes sim to find something that I thought I would never have the chance to see… an igloo! A small fire within was enough to keep me toasty and warm while I took a break and rested my tired legs. Who would have thought that sim hopping would be so exhausting?
Moving on from my cozy igloo, I was nearly lost in a snow covered field and as the flakes swirled around me, almost whiting out my field of view. Then, I found a merry-go-round with snowy white reindeer and majestic horses. They awaited my visit to give me one final ride before heading back to the more balmy and humid places that I usually frequent.
