Top Reasons to Go

Gold-rush heritage: The frontier spirit of the richest gold rush in Alaska remains alive in Fairbanks. From exploring dredges to panning for gold, chances to relive the past abound.

Stern-wheeler cruises: The Riverboat Discovery is an authentic stern-wheeler that cruises the Chena and Tanana rivers, which served as "highways" long before there were roads.

The gateway to the Arctic: Fairbanks is an essential point for connections to northern Alaska—vast land of the midnight sun and the northern lights.

Dog mushing: The Interior is Alaska's prime mushing spot. Many enthusiasts live here just so they can spend every free winter moment running sled dogs.

The U of A: Fairbanks is home to Alaska’s main university campus. This means the best museums, endless cultural events, and all the other perks of a college town, albeit one where winter temperatures drop to –50°F.
