From sledding in snowy Montana to stand-up paddle boarding in sunny St. Thomas, Santa is the ultimate world traveler. Check out where to find Santa in the next 2 weeks:
ST. THOMAS, USVI
On his way through the Caribbean, Santa indulges in a little adventure during his holiday travels! Here he does the impossible and masters the art of stand-up paddle boarding, without falling in, at Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort in St. Thomas. Families and friends can join in on the fun with the resort’s “Family Island Adventure” package, offering an active travel escape this holiday season.
WESTERLY, RHODE ISLAND
Santa is making an appearance at Ocean House this season as part of the resort’s annual 12 Days of Christmas programming. On December 20, kids are encouraged to partake in the Children’s Christmas Party with Santa and celebrate with an afternoon of holiday-inspired arts and crafts, stories and lunch. Have your photo taken with Santa too!
PARADISE ISLAND, BAHAMAS
Celebrate the holidays on the white-sand beaches of Atlantis, Paradise Island. The family-vacation mecca known for the largest open-air marine habitat in the world and 141-square foot Aquaventure Water Park is the perfect destination for winter fun in the sun. Santa Claus can be found riding his dolphin led sleigh throughout the resort – from the Mayan Temple and Dolphin Cay to the largest Bahamian casino and CRUSH Teen Club. Guests are welcomed to join in a traditional Christmas tree lighting ceremony of a spectacular 40-foot tree and kids (ages 7-12) are invited to bake cookies with Mrs. Claus in the Atlantis Kids Adventures club.
Families can choose from a variety of accommodations from the Beach Towers, Coral Towers, and Royal Towers to The Cove and The Reef. With quick, direct flights from over thirty cities, Atlantis offers a cornucopia of activities for the whole family.
Known for bringing families together for an old-fashioned storybook Christmas with sprawling acres of Montana winter wonderland to enjoy, The Resort at Paws Up‘s spacious luxury homes with fireplaces crackling, snow falling and the jingle of sleigh bells are the perfect ingredients to be “home” for the holidays. Each cozy home or wilderness estate includes a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, holiday movies and a personal Santa Claus that comes by to drop off presents for the kids. With over a hundred miles of lightly traveled wilderness trails, guests can experience everything from cross-country skiing and snowmobiling excursions, tubing, private indoor equestrian lessons, horse-drawn sleigh rides through frosted forests, ice-skating, dog-sledding and more. Kids can also enjoy a Christmas Eve party, a ginger bread house building contest and cookie decorating. The resort offers a great Christmas package, which includes accommodations, activities, and a Christmas dinner feast, Montana style! http://www.pawsup.com/rates/holiday-packages.php
