We took my niece to the Santa Claus House under the guise that Santa had sent her a ticket to fly from where she was visiting me, in Anchorage, to fly to the North Pole where he could take a short break to talk with her. It was wonderful, he took 20 minutes to chat with her and had endless... More

There were so many Christmas themed gifts to buy it was hard to choose but I couldn't go past the autographed, by Santa, "Twas the... More

We just love Christmas. It is our favorite holiday and we had a great time there. We could have spent hours there and spent tons of money. A really great place if you love Christmas!

If you're near Fairbanks, go and see the place so you can say you've been there. Crowded gift shop with lots of merchandise I'd consider over priced for the quality. Now that you're in North Pole, AK, go to the nearby Safeway, buy some sandwich fixings, and find the nice little city park on the other end of the downtown... More

If you love Christmas, this is a must stop. How can you be in North Pole without going to the Santa Claus House? They have a giant sleigh and Santa's reindeer. When were visited in the shoulder season, Santa was on vacation, but normally you can see the big guy every day. The thrust of this spot, like so many... More

Found some great things on sale. It was cold in the 50's in July and found a pair of sweat pants for $15. The fudge is rich and delicious. Even if you don't buy something from the store , buy their fudge. They give you tastes

We decided to make a quick stop here on our way to Fairbanks. Our children are too old to be interested in Santa, but they enjoyed looking around the store. This is a huge Christmas/gift shop with a couple if reindeer in a pen off to the side of the store. This is a fun place to say that you... More

While yes, this is basically a Christmas gift shop, their Santa is great and takes his time with the kids. The fudge is really good as well. We got our Christmas ornaments for this year here which does double duty, ornaments for the tree and a memento of our trip we will remember for all our lives! Great little place... More

During our recent trip to Fairbanks, AK, we stopped here. This place had just about anything you could want for Christmas! It was basically all about spending your money in the shop.
