This is a biggie because at Bass Pro Shops' Santa's Wonderland, photos are free and there's a waiting system that allows you to roam the store instead of standing in line. Santa's magical Christmas village features rustic cabins, holiday characters, live elves set amongst a dazzling backdrop of snow-covered hills and illuminated trees, remote control trucks, laser/ foam toy arcade, Lincoln Logs building area and much more. Kids can also spend time at one of the activity tables where they can write a letter to Santa, color and do fun crafts, all for free.
Note: Nov. 16-Dec. 24, hours vary, so check the website for specifics; Locations in Gurnee, Bolingbrook and Hoffman Estates.
