Living in Fairbanks

Despite the predominantly chilly weather in Fairbanks, there is plenty here to keep you warm. This Alaskan city has long been associated with good, clean fun, and that reputation is admirably upheld thanks to such annual benchmarks as the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival as well as a smattering of world-class dog sledding events. Despite the fact that they are held during the coldest months of the year, the races are full of heated competition.

Fans of both nature and history can explore the area in many ways, but two of the most popular are a tour on the Alaska Riverboat Discovery and a trip to the El Dorado Gold Mine. Additionally, the city offers an impressive arts and entertainment scene, a plethora of inviting restaurants and an unmatched natural beauty that altogether prove to be a powerful and irresistible combination to everyone who visits Fairbanks, one of the world's northernmost cities.
