In the shadow of the Ingham County Courthouse, a Christmas display looms large. A giant Santa Claus extends his hand as to wave at passers by. A giant mailbox awaits letters from good little boys and girls who wish for presents of all kinds. And down the street, wooden figures honoring the many soldiers of America's Soldiers are wrapped in scarves to keep them warm in the winter months of Michigan.

Just a short drive south of Lansing, Mason is a step back to small town America that is a warm welcome from big (or even medium sized) city madness. Take the kids for pictures and to get their letters to Santa! Just make sure you know what is on the list. (wink, wink)
