• Pictures with Santa in L.A.


It's the season of illuminating lights, making family Christmas cards, and decorating your own Christmas tree. But what makes your kids truly excited for this lovely holiday is, of course, meeting Santa! Luckily for all of us, there are plenty of places in L.A. for pictures with Santa. Here are the most recommended spots:

The Grove

The Grove goes all out for Christmas! Big, beautiful tree, Santa’s sleigh, even the occasional snowfall – no wonder there are huge crowds during the holiday season. That’s also why the lines for a picture with Santa can be pretty long, but it’s definitely worth it. While walk-ins are welcome, it's recommended you make a reservation. Packages range from $30 for one 5x7 print and four wallet-sized images to $70, which includes a flash drive with all the images on it and a video. Make your reservations here.

Santa Monica Place

Not only your little kids can enjoy meeting Santa here, there are also special events where you are welcome to bring your furry pets! Photos with Santa take place through Christmas Eve, for which reservations are available. Click here to reserve your spot.

The Americana at Brand

The Americana’s beautiful North Pole house is the place you want to be with you kids during this holiday season. Again, both walk-ins and those with reservations are welcome to take pictures with Santa. Their special packages range from $30 to $70. You are welcome to do some shopping as well as listen to the carolers! Click here for more info.
