Why? Visiting Santa in a rustic setting always has charm, but we also appreciate the instant gift—a free 4x6 photo that comes with it. The line-ups can be more manageable than some of the other mall Santa spots, and if they grow too long, the Bass Pass virtually ho-ho-holds your spot in line so you can shop while you wait. If your kids love nature, they can enjoy time watching the giant fish after a visit with the big guy (and if you or Dad are all about the outdoors, you'll be in shopping heaven). There are different events happening on different dates, so be sure to check out the website before you make your plans.
