Fairbanks | Interior Alaska

The small-town hospitality and pioneer spirit will make your stay in Fairbanks one to remember. It is Alaska’s second largest city and has a population of 32,000 and a Borough population of almost 100,000, including the nearby military bases. Fairbanks is the hub for Alaska’s Interior and Arctic with first-class accommodations and restaurants, museums, world-renowned concerts and performances, upscale galleries and specialty stores, historic sites, Alaska Native culture, and access to the Alaskan wilderness.

Fairbanks is also the home of several world class attractions. The Riverboat Discovery is consistently rated one of the top boat tours in the State and Gold Dredge 8 is also a visitor favorite. The Antique Auto Museum at the Wedgewood Resort has an amazing collection of vintage automobiles, historical photos and period costumes. Finally, don’t miss The University of Alaska ‘Museum of the North’ as it is one of the best museums in the State.
