North Park Center-It’s a no-brainer: you’re going to have your child’s picture taken with Santa, right? Then you might as well put your kid on the Santa named “one of the country’s premier Santa’s” by CBS News, and he’s at NorthPark Center. Arriving the day after Thanksgiving along with the Salvation Army parade, this Santa takes time for a one-on-one visit with your child, and will pose for a photo. The best part? Parents can take their own photo and so you don’t have to pay anything, or a professional photographer is available as well. Santa is on Level One between Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. Check the MomsOutLoud.com calendar for times for photos and visits with Old Saint Nick at NorthPark.

Can’t bribe your tot to sit on Santa’s knee? NorthPark is still the place to be this season. Starting November 21 (in 2009), NorthPark is home of the most elaborate toy train exhibit in Texas. Even the youngest locomotive-enthusiasts will enjoy riding across a miniature version of America, complete with national landmarks including Mount Rushmore and the Statue of Liberty. The exhibit is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 9pm and Sunday from noon to 6pm (see NorthPark’s website for early closure dates). Ticket prices are $6 for adults, $3 for children 2-12 years and senior citizens (65 and older), and free for children under age 2. Bonus: proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, which provides a home for more than 24,000 families of seriously ill children who have traveled to Dallas seeking medical treatment in Dallas area hospitals.
