Fairbanks, Alaska Bed and Breakfasts & Attractions
As you enjoy lodging in the Fairbanks area, you'll have the opportunity to tour the Chena River on an historic sternwheeler, pan for gold, view an active sled dog kennel, and more. The University of Alaska-Fairbanks hosts the Museum of the North as well as opportunities to learn about native plants and animals at the Large Animal Research Station and at the Georgeson Botanical Gardens.
During the summer, it’s the land of Midnight Sun. At the solstice in June, there are midnight baseball games, all-night canoeing and touring, and all kinds of revelry. Don't rule out a winter visit to Fairbanks. One of the city's feature attractions is the stunning display put on by the Northern Lights on many nights from September to April. Winter activities include snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, dog mushing, and ice fishing. The city also hosts the start and finish of the Yukon Quest, a competitive sled dog race on par with the Iditarod every other March.
