OK, so basically most places in Alaska do, in fact, look like a winter wonderland fairy tale. But by far, one of the most magical places in Alaska is Fairbanks.

Sure, it’s one of the more populated places in Alaska (which honestly means it’s about the size of a normal mainland U.S. town), but Fairbanks sits at 65 degrees north latitude. This means it’s the best spot in the United States to see the Northern Lights or to experience the midnight sun.

Whether it’s summertime and the sun never sets on green fields and stunning mountains, or it’s the winter with the colorful Northern Lights dancing in the sky over snowy forests, Fairbanks is a true “Frozen”-style fairytale area.
