Visit Santa in Council Bluffs and Omaha: Big List of Places!

I recently shared the Holiday and Christmas Events in Council Bluffs for 2017 and that got me thinking. Where would one find Santa in Council Bluffs in Omaha if they wanted to tell him what’s on their wish list? I began tracking down all the places Saint Nick would be at this year and I’m sure there will be more to add to the list as December gets closer!
