It might be August, but it's not too soon to make plans for the holidays - especially if they involve Tea with Santa at The Umstead.
The high-end hotel in Cary will offer six sittings with Santa. The teas include tea, holiday treats and a story time with the big guy. They'll be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 3, Dec. 10 and Dec. 17 and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 4, Dec. 11 and Dec. 18.
Reservations are required. This can fill up pretty quickly. The cost is $28 per person including tax and service charges (as I said ... high end). Call 919-447-4200 for reservations. This is best for kids ages 10 and under and their families.
