North Pole exciting ‘Experience’ for the kids

While in Flagstaff, Arizona shooting a video of winter activities, I had to check out the North Pole Experience. Boarding a trolley (a tour bus) at the Little America we made our way toward Santa’s workshop.  Of course, the North Pole is a long way from Flagstaff, Arizona, so I was wondering how we would get there. Unbeknownst to me, there is a portal in Flagstaff that transports visitors to the North Pole, provided of course that you know the secret chant, which some of Santa’s Elves taught us while on the trolley.

The North Pole Experience is really an amazing activity for the kids. Visitors are taken through a series of rooms throughout Santa’s workshop— from the Elf toy-making room, present wrapping area, mail room where Santa has an office, to finally ending with a visit with Santa himself.


It was just getting dark when we returned to the Little America hotel, which is the starting/ending point for the North Pole Experience, when I noticed a slew of Christmas Lights illuminating the trees and foliage around the property. With camera in tow I began to stroll the property and take in the wonderful light display.
