My sources say this is the best Santa EVER, soaring high above the city at 1,000 feet.
At the Observatory, Santa's helper Seemore Miles (the Observatory mascot) helps guests feel the holiday spirit. Everyone who visits gets a free family photo, face painting and free child ticket to Shedd Aquarium. For an additional fee, you can eat breakfast with Santa in the clouds.
Open 1-5 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday until Dec. 24.
