At Santa Claus Lane in Carpinteria you no longer can find Santa sitting atop a chimney of a shop, as we recently pointed out. Santa was evicted and relocated to Oxnard nearby. But the signs of Santa Claus and Christmas can be found in more than 25 California cities where it’s Christmas all the time. The most fun among them is South Lake Tahoe where an entire portion of town has roads and streets named for the special holiday. Here’s how you find the Christmas neighborhood: Take Christmas Valley Road (Highway 89) to Santa Claus Drive, where it meets up with Reindeer Way. From there you can weave around on streets Elf, Blitzen, St. Nick Drive, Sleighbell Way and Snowflake Way.
Here are some Christmas-themed streets and the cities in California where you’ll find them:
