The North Pole!

Did you know that the North Pole is just a short 30 minute drive from UAF? Well, not the real North Pole, but there is a city just south of Fairbanks called North Pole. The city of North Pole is decorated for Christmas year round and you can even visit Santa and his reindeer at his house any time during the year. I visited there on Friday while on my way out to North Pole High School actually.

As a resident of North Pole, I feel obligated to say that it is one of the coolest towns in the country. Not only are we the home of one of the largest Santa Claus statues in the world, but we are also known for our roundabouts. Yup, know, the circle traffic control deals. Check out an article talking about them at
