Don't miss a trip to Gold Dredge Number 8 to learn about Fairbanks' role in the Gold Rush that swept the nation. If you're into rare automobiles, head to the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum and tour a world-class collection. With the car rentals Fairbanks has, you can venture out to attractions like the Chena River State Recreation Area, then take a boat out on the water and leave your worries behind. Stroll through Birch Hill Cemetery, or stop by North Pole for a drink and a visit with Santa Claus. With all these attractions, it's no wonder holidays in Fairbanks are more and more popular.
Many festivals happen in summer, but there's always something to do year-round. Golden Days in July honors local Gold Rush history, and July also contains the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival and the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics. Farmers' markets are popular in the summer as well. If you're here between September and April, gaze up into the sky for those Northern Lights; it's a life-changing view.
