Day Trip: Scuba Santa's in Cincinnati

The North Pool, anyone?

You won’t get to sit on Santa’s lap, but it’s not every day you can see him kitted out in a mask and flippers. At Newport Aquarium’s Scuba Santa’s Water Wonderland in metro Cincinnati, Old St. Nick and his elves mingle with sea life in a 385,000-gallon tank. The big fella even reads ’Twas the Night Before Christmas underwater. 1 Aquarium Way, Newport, Kentucky, 859-261-7444,
