Santa's Reindeer Flyer to visit Santa at the North Pole
This magical family adventure departs from Ely, Nevada to go see, meet, and ride with Santa at the North Pole. It's Santa's North Pole Tradition for you and the entire family!
Along the way we will meet a lively bunch of Santa's helpers, including Santa's elves.

Rising stately on the grounds of the County Park next to the Court House, this beautiful sculpture pays tribute to the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom.
Well-known architect and native son, George Tate designed this artistic memorial and gave us our very first outdoor sculpture, which preceded our murals. George and his wife Verena are WPHS graduates from the classes of ‘50 and ‘51 and felt the need to honor the veterans from White Pine County as well as provide our community with an outstanding piece of art.
