The second largest city in Alaska, Fairbanks is named the “Golden Heart City” for its historical and modern gold industries and for its central location. The city serves as the hub of the region known as Alaska’s Interior. In the summer, visitors and residents alike enjoy nearly 24 hours of light daily.
Visitors have many Fairbanks activities to choose from. Experience Fairbanks’ rich Gold Rush history via sternwheeler, or visit one of the region’s many gold mines. Playing a round of golf under the midnight sun is always a favorite pastime.
