My favorite childhood memories of Christmas are our trips to the mall to see Santa. At the time, I didn't understand why Santa and his Elves were always at the mall, but as an adult, well I get it.

So skip the malls, keep your wallet closed and your kids happy by taking the family to Santa Land at Mackenzie Park. Of course, Saint Nick will be there along with Mrs. Clause, Christmas Trees, entertainment, food and more!

It's very cool that you can take your own camera and take family pictures with Santa, the cost is right in my holiday shopping budget...it's free!

Santa Land runs December 10th through 23rd nightly from 6-10 p.m.
