No other place in Alaska blends the richness of its history with present day. Transportation from yesteryear - sternwheelers, bush planes, railroads and sled dog teams - continues to provide experiences to visitors similar to those of past travelers. Sports buffs can take in a full schedule of hockey or basketball games. They can tee off late one summer evening under the midnight sun or view a baseball game at 10:30 p.m. with no artificial lights.
Nature buffs can visit the local farmers market and the botanical gardens. Visitors can enjoy a wide selection of indigenous and contemporary art and music and an impressive selection of galleries and specialty stores. Fairbanks is the venue for local fine arts, a symphony orchestra, and world-renowned theatrical and musical performances year-round.
