Fairbanks, AK: Santa Claus House

If you find yourself in Fairbanks with small kids (or hey big kids like us enjoy it too), the Santa Claus House in North Pole, Alaska is one stop you might want to consider. It breaks up the ride out to the Knotty Shop and you can take a picture with Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Bring your own camera and snap as many pictures as you want for free!
I generally ignore all the standard christmas decorations and head straight back toward the restrooms because they cover the hallway with all the letters they receive addressed to "Santa Claus, North Pole." Yup, everyone one of those arrives at the this small town about 150 miles south of the Arctic Circle. So technically it is not really the North Pole but I think it is close enough.
