Fairbanks

With its strip malls and fast-food restaurants, Fairbanks appears a bit functional on first glance.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fishing Charters & Tours and Gold Daughters Alaska. Step out of the city life by going to Angel Rocks Trail and Wedgewood Wildlife Sanctuary. Spend the 6th (Fri) exploring the striking scenery along Steese Hwy. Spend the 7th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, don't miss a visit to Santa Claus House, learn more about the world around you at University of Alaska Museum of the North, and take in the pleasant sights at Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge.
