It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and what better way to celebrate the spirit of the season than with jolly old St. Nick! During the entire month of December, Santa will be making his way throughout our city – taking train rides, diving with penguins, and so much more! He’s keeping busy, so don’t miss out on your chance to catch him! On behalf of Dani Beyer Real Estate, here is your comprehensive list of Santa sightings all around town, and a few tips on how to make the most of your visit.
