Socially Distanced Santa Photos and Visits In Monmouth County - The Monmouth Moms



We have rounded up five local Santa activities from virtual pictures, online visits, and socially distanced in-person experiences. It is especially hard for the kids to understand this year, so hopefully these businesses can bring a little magic to both the children and families. We are wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season. If you know of any other Santa experiences let us know!
