Adventures in Fairbanks

Fairbanks Tours, Sightseeing and Attractions

If you’re contemplating a trip to Fairbanks sometime in the near future, you may be wondering what the major must-see attractions are available in this former gold rush community. The types of things to do in Fairbanks depend on the time of year of your visit. Summer guests of the Last Frontier can choose to take a flightseeing trip over the Article Circle, take a ride on a local steamship, rent a car and visit Denali National Park, or enjoy a meal of freshly prepared Alaska seafood in one of the many good dining spots in Fairbanks. You can probably even find an informal softball game going on at the city park at 1 a.m. Don't worry about being kept awake by the constant daylight, though; hotels and other accommodations routinely provide blackout curtains so guests can get a good's night sleep.
