These Are The Best Places to See Santa in Stockton, California

Visit Stockton

Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, Santa Claus; a jolly old elf by any other name still brings cheer to all.

You better watch out, you better not cry! Santa Claus is coming to Stockton! Santa represents love, laughter, and giving at Christmastime. But where is the best place to see Santa in Stockton, California? He stays awfully busy during the holiday season, so we thought it would be useful to compile a list of places to find Ol' Saint Nick around town.

Here is a list of places where you can track him down and take the kids this holiday season.

Stockton's Miracle Mile

Join over 25 Miracle Mile merchants as they host their Annual Holiday Open House on November 29, accompanied by photos with Jolly Ol' Saint Nick, a Tree Lighting Ceremony on Tuxedo Court, an unveiling of a new Miracle Mile Mural on Adams Street, and many other festive activities and live music.
