The Golden Heart City

With its strip malls and fast-food restaurants, Fairbanks appears a bit functional on first glance.
You've added Large Animal Research Station, Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge, Alyeska Pipeline Viewing Point, and other attractions to your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Chena Hot Springs Resort in Chena Hot Springs (about 1h 20 min away). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, don't miss a visit to Antler Arch, take in the pleasant sights at Wedgewood Wildlife Sanctuary, and pause for some photo ops at Felix Pedro Monument.

Houston to Fairbanks is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also fly; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Houston to Fairbanks. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Houston in September, with highs in Fairbanks at 53°F and lows at 36°F. You will have some time to spend on the 12th (Sat) before leaving for home.
