Driving from Fairbanks to Anchorage please make sure to take the route going via North Pole, a very small village but a lot of history behind it. It was home to America's largest toy factory for years and that amazed me. The santa claus house is just a very positive and fun place for both kids and adults. You can... More

Start by going to the ice park next to santa clause house. It is very cold, so make sure you cover up! Santa clause house is an awesome experience and as you wait to have your pic taken with santa (free with your camera) you can shop, drink delicious mocha latte or eat fudge which is so good!

Difficult to say Baa Humbug at something that is just so Christmas. Not sure you would ever have to go anyone else to buy xmas stuff.

Not everyone can get to the north pole, but if you are in Fairbanks, it's pretty easy to visit North Pole, a town a few miles east of the city. Once there, the main attraction is Santa Claus House, full of Christmas gifts and ornaments and, of course, Santa Claus himself--the real one--who will be happy to have you send... More

Quite the little gift shop here. Lots of kids waiting to sit on Santa's lap, so I decided to eat the great fudge and by gifts for my fiancé. An attraction worth visiting if near North Pole, Alaska.

If you are in Fairbanks, you must visit the North Pole where Santa Clause's house is. A fun place to shop and visit Santa with ornaments that you have not seen anywhere else. They now have a fudge/espresso area where you can purchase refreshments to warm up with. You will not be disappointed. You can also see the reindeer that... More

A magical wonderland, the Rv Park was fantastic, a resident reindeer and a friendly greeting from Santa in his gift shop. Pity the grandchildren weren't on holiday with us

Loved the Santa Claus House. A trip to North Pole just wouldn't be complete without it. Everything you would expect including Santa, his sleigh and the reindeer.

Ok, so maybe dad won't be completely impressed, but mom will be overwhelmed with gift options! With a fine cup of North Pole Coffee in your hand, you can shop this one and only store of its kind. Yes, there are other Santa shops, but this is the Real Deal! My wife regularly find a new addition to her Christian... More
