Where to Visit Santa on Long Island – 2018

It is that time of the year to take our kids to see Santa!

A lot of places on Long Island have opportunities for your children to meet Santa and tell him what they would like for Christmas before December 25th. Where will you go?

We have a great list of places for you to visit Santa with your children:



Across Long Island our malls have Santa hours. I love that they have also set aside times that children with special needs can visit and it will not be so overwhelming. So, please look through the list of the malls and see when those days and hours are on the websites of each mall.
