Santa Claus House is exactly what you would expect, but it is definitely worth a visit. It was nice to take a walk around the grounds and visit Santa's reindeer that are located on the property. This would be a great place for a family. If it would not have been for my Wife, I would not have stopped here,... More

I loved all the items they are selling. But It's not just a store but more like a museum or gallery. All the christmas ornaments and accessories are so pretty, never a low-key! I bought a music box with a shape of christmas gift shop, which is adorable! Also, a good place for photoshooting! Must a visit! Just be careful... More

One can buy Christmas-themed trinkets all year and visit Santa (most of the year). What more could you want?! It is obviously catered to the tourists, but you know what you are getting into. One cool treat is to send letters to kids from Santa.

From Tok we drove the Alaskan Highway direction Fairbanks, we're surprisingly pass to this place called North Pole. I have to wipe my eyes twice if I'm not dreaming. First thing attracts me is the huge santa statue standing outside. The house itself is very attractive, young and old we'll have a great time in this place. I didn't expected... More

I really like this place. I never buy anything because it is really expensive. But....I do think it is really cute. They even have letters you can send from "Santa". I really enjoy walking around and browsing.

Santa was such a sweet nice guy. I was very impressed. Great ornaments, excellent fudge, not too crowded when we were there. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the ornaments are a little overpriced.

If you are a kid at heart, this is a place for you to come take a photo with Santa. It doesn't cost a dime to go in and look. But they have many things there very reasonably priced. Lots of neat things inside, the staff was very friendly, especially Mr. and Mrs. Santa

This place is definitely more of a souvenir shop than, say, a magical place where Santa is 24/7, sitting and waiting for kids to arrive with reindeer and elves running around being merry mad making gifts, but the staff that I met were friendly and I got a kick out of the Santa letters. They have regular ones, religious, household,... More

Right before Christmas is crazy busy. Bring your own camera and wait your turn for a visit and picture with Santa. Christmas in Ice is a fun hour or so, dress warm. The ice carvings are special at night as the colored lights add extra charm. The gift shop is Christmas all year long, but so is the rest of... More
