Such a fun place! It is Christmas year around. They have beautiful Christmas ornaments and quirky Alaska gifts. They have lots of nativity sets. You can sit on Santa’s lap. They also have a fun coffee bar.

Stopped in on my way out of town. The House itself was closed for remodeling, but the huge Santa statue, the path leading though the ice sculptures, and the reindeer pen was really fun.

I visited the North Pole and Santa's House was closed. We took pictures with the ice art and looked a tthe Reindeer. If I ever get to go to Northern Alaska again, I will try to see Santa and visit his house.
