With its strip malls and fast-food restaurants, Fairbanks appears a bit functional on first glance.
Kids will enjoy Pioneer Park and Chena Hot Springs Resort. Spend the 10th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, admire the majestic nature at Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge, contemplate the waterfront views at Chena River State Recreation Area, and take in nature's colorful creations at Georgeson Botanical Garden.
