Fairbanks

With its strip malls and fast-food restaurants, Fairbanks appears a bit functional on first glance.
Appreciate the collections at University of Alaska Museum of the North and Fairbanks Ice Museum. Get a sense of the local culture at Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum and Tanana Valley Model Railroad Display. 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 18th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 20th (Thu) exploring the striking scenery along Steese Hwy. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Santa Claus House, indulge your thirst for a good beer at HooDoo Brewing Company, view the masterpieces at Two Street Gallery LLC, and sample the fine beverages at Hoarfrost Distilling.
