Best Hotel Santas

Early in the Christmas season, Santa arrives at Amelia Island in a horse-drawn carriage along a drive lined with guests and local families to help light the tree. He distributes snacks and drinks and then makes an appearance at the Santa Storybook Tea Party and the Holiday Character Dinner. Every weekend leading up to Christmas, Santa, escorted by an elf, tucks children into bed and reads them a story.
