9. Meet Santa at Bounce Milwaukee
Like Santa, but don't feel like heading to the mall to be assaulted by unenthusiastic elves trying to sell you picture packages? Bounce Milwaukee, too. Their Santa is way more chill, and is completely free to hang out with. You're more than welcome to stay, eat, drink or play, but if you want to just stop by for a picture (free, with your own camera and without elves!), they'd love to have you. Optionally, if you'd like to bring a donation for the Hope House of Milwaukee, they'll drop it off to them, give you some freshly-baked cookies, and put in a good word for you with Santa. Here's their current wish list: http://www.hopehousemke.org/ways_to_give/wish_list
