With shorter days and longer nights, winter is the season to light up the darkness in a big way. Here are a few of our favorite destinations for holiday cheer:
• Zoo Lights (Anchorage) – The Alaska Zoo shines bright with lights on display all winter long.
• The Festival of Lights (Fairbanks) – Enjoy a fireworks show with fantastic views along the Chena River.
• Christmas in Ice (North Pole) – This six-week winter ice park is right next to North Pole’s Santa Claus House.
• Santa Claus House (North Pole) – Technically a year-round fixture, the Santa Claus House is a holiday season staple.
