The Interior Travel Guide

Delta Junction

A good 100 miles southeast of Fairbanks, Delta is not only a handy stop on the Richardson Highway but also the official western terminus of the Alaska Highway (when the Alcan was built, although Fairbanks was the ultimate destination, there was already a road from Fairbanks down to Delta). It's no surprise, then, that in summer Delta becomes a bustling rest stop for road-weary travelers.

On top of this, it's the largest agricultural center in Alaska, boasting a local farmers' market, meat-and-sausage company, and dairy. Delta is also known for its access to good fishing and its proximity to the Delta Bison Range. Don't expect to see the elusive 500-strong bison herd, though, as they roam free and generally avoid people.

Across the street from the Tourist Information office are the Sullivan Roadhouse Historical Museum and the Highway's End Farmer's Market, open on Wednesday and Saturday mid-May to early September, 10 am–3 pm.
