The Golden Heart City
With its strip malls and fast-food restaurants, Fairbanks appears a bit functional on first glance. This city of about 32,000, though, serves as a base for memorable adventures in the dramatic surrounding landscape. The mountains draw hiking and biking enthusiasts, while the rivers serve up prime canoeing and kayaking. Fairbanks itself offers plenty to hold visitors' interest too. Numerous attractions pay homage to the city's gold-mining heritage and the area's Native American communities. Fairbanks' true highlights reveal themselves, though, between late September and early April--this is when the Northern Lights put on colorful displays in the night sky.
