This Underrated Town Might Just Be The Most Beautiful Place In Alaska

The largest city in the interior region of the last frontier definitely has its misconceptions. While many view this town to be far too cold and dark for their liking, we know that the good things about this town far outweigh the bad. When you go from -50 degrees in the wintertime to almost 100 degrees in the summertime, sure – the temperature swings are hard to get used to. But what this really does is it limits the year-round population to people who truly are dedicated to living the real, rugged Alaskan lifestyle.

Fairbanks is not only a gold mining mecca-land, but it is the most epic place to dance under the Midnight Sun or make snow angels under the Northern Lights. If you love the great outdoors, you’ll fall head over heels in love with the town of Fairbanks. Choose from endless hiking trails, beautiful kayaking spots and convenient places to rip up river on a jet-ski right from the heart of downtown. From fishing on the Chena River to world class hunting spots – Fairbanks has something for everyone.
