Fairbanks is the gateway to Alaska and a great place to orient oneself to a far north vacation! Allow at least 2 full days to experience some of what Fairbanks has to offer, from river trips to museums, gold mining to Flight-seeing, sight-seeing to shopping. You could also take a dip in one of the hot springs close to town, visit Santa Claus at his home in North Pole, walk around Pioneer Park and learn about the history of the area.We feel your best option would be to spend 3 or 4 days in Fairbanks. There's plenty to see and do!
