Fairbanks

— 6 nights

The Golden Heart City

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 20 min away. There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Pioneer Park, identify plant and animal life at Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge, see the interesting displays at Aurora Ice Museum, and shop like a local with University of Alaska Museum of the North.
