I stopped in here, just to kill time. I honestly expected it to be cheesy and lame, but I found myself exploring the place for hours and even lining up for a picture with Santa. There's something magical about this place that really makes you smile! I must have been lucky, because there were only four people lined up in... More

There is something about the way you wind your way into the building, discovering little signs of Christmas, and then...walking into a room where you somehow, suddenly come across the jolly fellow in red who invites you to sit with him for a photo.
