North Pole Restaurants

  • Best Chinese food in the area

    The restaurant's atmosphere is tasteful Oriental, service fast and friendly, reasonable prices, large portions, large menu, and very good food. I love the combination plate with egg roll, chop suey, egg drop soup, fried rice, but have tried almost everything on the menu and it is all of the same quality, excellent!

    Aurora Borealis: Northern Lights

    by Santa-Claus Written Aug 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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".

    Dress Code: A good coat

    Jingle bells, jingle bells,
    Jingle all the way!
    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.

North Pole Off The Beaten Path

  • Have a wonderful campground almost to...

    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...

  • Drive further on to Birch Lake

    Around 48 miles down the Richardson Highway, to mile marker 305.2, is a military recreation camp called Birch Lake. If you are active or retired military, check it out. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout, king and silver salmon, grayling, and arctic char.
