Orange County around the holidays can be a special time for making memories with loved ones, and this year will be no exception. If you’re entertaining relatives from out of town, or if you have a household full of kids and you’re trying to think of some activities that they’ll enjoy, this list should provide you with plenty of ideas. The OC might not get much snow, but there’s still plenty of the holiday spirit to go around.
Track Down Santa
If your kids are eager to spend some quality time with everyone’s favorite jolly, red-clad fellow with the infectious booming laugh, there are several places you can go. At California Pizza Kitchen at the Irvine Spectrum, you can enjoy a breakfast with Santa that includes a pizza and a beverage of your choice. Admission is $10; call for dates this month.
You can also see Santa at Applebees on December 15th at Anaheim Town Square. Admission is $10 there as well, and you’ll get a full spread of breakfast options. All the money earned goes to families in need, so this is a great cause with which to get involved.
Perhaps the best Santa-related event, however, is the Irvine Park Christmas Railroad Train. You can take a fun night ride with your kids up to the 23rd of this month, as the Christmas train will depart from the brightly decorated station and head straight to the North Pole, where the children can sit on Santa’s lap and tell him all about their holiday wishes. There will be a guaranteed photo op with Santa as well. Tickets to this event always sell out quickly, so call or go online to reserve yours today.
The last Santa-themed event is the Arrival Parade in Anaheim. A date hasn’t been set, but it should be revealed shortly. At the Anaheim Town Square there will be train rides, a balloon artist, face painting, craft activities for kids, as well as photos with Santa. There’s even going to be a play area with real snow!
If your kids are of the age where they look forward to the winter holidays for months in advance, why not do something special for them? You’ll cherish these memories as they grow, and so will they.
