Ready for some classic pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus this holiday season? You can get pictures with Santa in Chicago at Wrigley Field or catch a movie with him in Woodridge. If you prefer the traditional mall Santa pictures, you can find him at Water Tower Place, Fashion Outlets of Chicago, and so many more spots (see below for our favorites!). City dwellers seem to love getting their pictures with Santa taken at Macy's, while suburbanites flock to Bass Pro Shop for their Santa photos experience. 

While you're making your holiday schedule, don't forget to check out one of our favorite light shows or Nutcracker performances throughout the city and suburbs. There are plenty of free ways to celebrate the holidays in and around Chicago, and lots of other seasonal ideas in our Guide to Holidays and Christmas Activities
