North Pole Experience–in Arizona!
You can help elves build toys in Santa’s workshop. During the North Pole Experience in Flagstaff, Ariz., visitors board a trolley from The Little America Hotel, then travel through a magic portal aboard the Candy Cane or Snowball Express trolley to reach the workshop. After attending Elf University and seeing Santa’s Toy Invention Hall of Fame, kids sit in on story time with Mrs. Claus and then meet her hubby — with whom you’re guaranteed plenty of one-on-one family time. Kids also gain top-secret access to Area 47, Santa’s special sleigh hanger. Lodge packages are available to make it an overnight stay.
