This wasn't our first trip to the Santa Clause House. And we didn't just make one stop on this trip either :-) It's a magical Christmas place for any age. And Santa is awesome !!

13 miles from Fairbanks, was a cute little town with candy cane street lights. The Santa Claus House has fudge, gifts, toys and collectibles. Santa is there 24/7, and is open year-around. This was one of the best hi-lights of our trip. A must-see.

I was visiting my son and his family in Anchorage, we took a drive to Fairbanks and went to the Santa Claus Hiuse, it's all my grandkids could talk about all the way there. We weren't disappointed. Santa Claus was great with the kids and really seemed to enjoy talking with them. There is a beautiful assortment of ornaments and... More

This place was so cute. We visited in April, so unfortunately feeding the reindeer was not an option, but we were still able to see them! Santa wasn't there that day, but we had fun sitting in his chair and getting our Christmas Card pic for Christmas 2016! The employees were so sweet and took pics for us. We bought... More

We travelled all the way from Australia to visit Santa in the Santa Claus house. Santa and Mrs Claus did not disappoint! My daughter has a memory for life now! When we got there, there was a line to get in. Once the store opened we went inside and received a number to have photos with Santa. This gave us... More

Christmas items abound in this cool local shop. Also, tons of local made items to choose from. Take a picture with Santa and see the reindeer next door.

A great place to shop or to just browse while drinking coffee from the onsite baristas. Christmas time is busy and always exciting.

It's Christmas all year round at the Santa Claus House. The 'Big Guy' is there daily, throughout the year, with a few weeks off, here and there, for vacationing on a sandy beach somewhere. You can get your child's picture with Santa, he'll talk to them briefly about what they'd like for Christmas, etc...you can also sit on his lap... More

We enjoyed our visit to Santa Claus House. It is a big gift shop with a special area with Santa. Santa was incredible. When I asked for a picture to send our grandchildren, he said, "Let's make a video!" His elf took my phone and recorded his greeting to our grandchildren. Everyone at the Santa House is very friendly and... More
