Traveling from Minnesota on our Alaskan vacation, we had to include a visit to North Pole to go see the Santa Claus House. The people were very enthusiastic; there were unique items; and Santa Claus really is a nice guy! He even signed some of the ornaments we bought as gifts! This was well worth visiting and we'd recommend adding... More

So I just moved back to the area and we visit here all the time. It's mostly a gift shop but when Santa is there my little guys are in aww. Plus they like seeing the reindeer outside as well. Prices are kid of high but typical tourist prices. Overall a fun stop.

A good place to visit if you enjoy christmas. As you would expect there is a huge choice of chritmas decorations and trinkets. Santa is friendly and makes time for all ages. The highlight has to be the riendeer...worth a visit but dont plan more than a couple hours.

This place is good for bragging "I visited Santa at North Pole" If you are in the Fairbanks area, you should stop by to see it. Nice gift shop, reindeer, and of course, Santa! We picked up some cool ornaments while there and we both had our picture taken with Santa. For free!

If you have been to Frankenmuth, MI, you have seen a lot bigger and more elaborate stores. If you happen to be there and Christmas fascinates you in June when it is only dark for 3 hours, go for it. It is a nice store, loaded with all the trappings of a year round Christmas store. It has home made... More
