This year, a few new favorite spots have popped up in addition to Atlanta’s classic favorites. From Seaside Saint Nick at Georgia Aquarium to Stylish Santa at Buckhead Village, you’ll even spot Santa in some unexpected locations! Catch Santa illuminating extraordinary live trees, sip on hot cocoa as you sing holiday carols, and maybe even spot a few of his reindeer as you search your way through the city to catch the Big Guy in Red (or green!).
