There is a sales tax in North Pole, but not Fairbanks
I have traveled all over Alaska and chose North Pole as my home.
I stopped at this new little gift shop in North Pole, Alaska it is an incredibly cool building to start off i mean you have not seen anything like it before at all, it is...well awesome; a log cabin that looks more like a spaceship or something. And then when you go through the doors it is really cool, the first thing that you see when you go...more
North Pole is the perfect place for Fairbanks area photographers to visit in the dead of night for aurora borealis (Northern Lights) photography. Most cameras are spec'd only to +32F.

The Aurora is defined as a natural and luminous phenomenon of streamers of arches of light appearing in the upper atmosphere of a planet. It is seen especially in the polar region. On the earth, we can see it near the arctic circles. Since auroras happen everyday somewhere on the earth, auroras can be observed almost everyday at those places as long as the sky is clear at night. The auroras in the Northern Hemisphere are called "aurora borealis" or "the northern lights".

Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a six-reindeer open sleigh!
Of course, the sleigh is the only transportation... If you don't have one, you can rent it.
If you want to camp after Labor Day but before Haloween, Chena Lakes campground is wonderful. Generally, there is no one else camping there, or at least you can get out of sight of anyone else that is there. There is great fishing on both the lake and river and the whole park is very well maintained and beautiful. The best part is that you will...more
