Rob in Alaska: Visiting Santa's Place

NORTH POLE, Alaska -- We are at the northernmost part of our tour right now. We're about 140 miles from the Arctic Circle in a place many of you may have heard of before. We are at the North Pole. Literally, it's called the North Pole, Alaska.

The town of North Pole, Alaska is decorated in everything Christmas. From the largest Santa Claus you'll probably  ever see, to the fire hydrants and light posts..and no surprise, the city is home to a ton of Christmas stores.

Never thought I'd be here. We should have Christmas all the time. Wouldn't that be neat?

One of the fun things about the North Pole, it has its own post office. You can buy a postcard, write it to someone back home and the store will mail it out the week before Christmas..postmarked from the North Pole.

 'They're gunna be tickled. They'll love it. I told them Santa said hi'

We then said goodbye to Alaska for a bit, and spent two days traveling through Canada..capped off by a breath taking train trip on board the White Pass Railway, a narrow gauge train that hugs the mountainside as it descends thousands of feet...to Skagway, Alaska where our cruise ship would be waiting for us.
