Santa Claus is coming to town! (Actually, he’s already here in many ‘hoods.) We found more places to grab a snap with St. Nick than ever before this year. Here’s where you can meet the jolly man himself in his red and white glory, snag a picture, a hug, and even lunch with him. Click through to find your family’s Santa!

For Santa in Westchester: Ridge Hill

Previously home to Dreamworks movie-inspired Santa events, Ridge Hill is going classic this year with visits to Santa's Cottage in the mall's "Town Square" from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, through December 24. Visitors can check out the interactive snowflake wall, music and light shows every 30 minutes (5 p.m. to 10 p.m.) and a private family meet and greet in Santa’s library. FastPass reservations are available here, but not required.
