Santa Claus in Denver:
is a pretty busy fellow, but manages to make several pit stops in Denver before Christmas. Even though Santa's home of the North Pole
is near sea level, Santa is no stranger to high altitude once he hops in his sleigh. Visit Santa Claus at one of these Denver locations during 2012.
Most locations charge for photos, but Bass Pro Shops and Larimer Square both offer free photos with Santa Claus.
