Fairbanks

With its strip malls and fast-food restaurants, Fairbanks appears a bit functional on first glance.
Escape the urban bustle at Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge and Chena River State Recreation Area. Take a break from Fairbanks with a short trip to Chena Hot Springs Resort in Chena Hot Springs, about 1h 40 min away. Spend the 7th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: sample the tasty concoctions at Silver Gulch Brewing and Bottling Co., admire all the interesting features of Large Animal Research Station, learn more about the world around you at University of Alaska Museum of the North, and get your game on at Gold Daughters Alaska.
