For generations of families, a visit with Santa Claus is a cherished Christmas tradition. Even though many in-person holiday events are on hold this year, kids can still have a word and perhaps a photo with St. Nick at a select few Boston-area shopping malls, parks, restaurants, and railways that are hosting socially distant Santa activities in 2020.

Prefer to connect directly to the North Pole from home? Consider booking an Online Santa Visit, just one of the safe, seasonal family fun ideas in our Boston Holiday Fun Guide.
