— 7 nights


With its strip malls and fast-food restaurants, Fairbanks appears a bit functional on first glance.
Step out of Fairbanks with an excursion to Chena Hot Springs Resort in Chena Hot Springs--about 1h 35 min away. Spend the 2nd (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 8th (Fri) exploring the striking scenery along Steese Hwy. There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at University of Alaska Museum of the North, explore and take pictures at University of Alaska Fairbanks, look for all kinds of wild species at Large Animal Research Station, and examine the collection at Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum.

To see maps, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, go to the Fairbanks online travel route planner .

Expect a daytime high around 24°F in March, and nighttime lows around -2°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
