We always make a point of seeing Santa Land at Macy's in NYC around the holiday season. Not only do I love shopping at Macy's anytime during the year, but taking the kids to Santa Land is always a special treat. Instead of waiting in a line for Santa like you would at the mall, Santa Land's "line" takes you twisting and turning through all sorts of Christmas Scenes. Our 20 minute wait in line was a breeze, even with 3 small children! Every step of the way, there is something new to look at and there are also lots of interactive things to keep the kids busy. When we did finally reach the end of the line, there was an elf there to greet us. She asked how many in our group, and then escorted us to Santa's Hut. There are actually multiple Santa's here at Santa Land (shhh! don't tell the kids) but they're all in little shacks so you can't see any of the others but the one you actually visit. This is why the line is able to move so quickly despite the many people that visit. The Santa at Macy's are so realistic - the best I've ever seen. They also allow you to take your own photograph of the kids with Santa, something our local mall no longer permits :( In addition to Santa land, I enjoy shopping at Macy's in general. They've always got the trendiest clothes, especially for kids. I buy a lot of children's clothing at Macy's They seem to have some items at least 50% off or more every time I go there, making them affordable. Once, I got lucky and hit a clearance sale. All items were 4.99 AND Buy one Get one Free. So basically, for $2.50 each, I picked up about 50 items with brand name labels like Carters, Guess, Amy Beyer, and more! Granted they were off season (winter clothes bought in the middle of summer) but I just bought one size up saved them for next season. Definitely make time for Macy's on your next trip to NYC. Especially if you have children and are visiting around the Holidays!
