One of our favorite Indy holiday traditions is a meal with Santa. We’ve had breakfast with Santa and we’ve had dinner with Santa. We’ve hung out at Conner Prairie, at the Children’s Museum, at the State Museum and at the mall. Santa visits families dinning in many locations across the city and here are some of them.
