Despite what you may have heard from travel agents, Fairbanks is more than
just a conduit to the Denali Park.
This page is dedicated to directing you
to the more popular attractions enjoyed in Fairbanks in the summer.
Those with links at the left are open only in the
summer, roughly from Memorial Day to Labor Day (except the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics).
In addition to those on the left and below, there are many events
during the year, attractions for locals and tourists alike, as well as inexpensive ways to enjoy the Golden Heart City of Fairbanks,
Alaska. For summer fun in the outdoors, check out our Water Adventures
page. There is even much to do in the heart of downtown. The
Area Communities button above contains links to other activities in the surrounding area
(try Delta, Ester Nenana, or North Pole). Want to go to a movie? Here
is a link to the current listings at our only theatre, Regal
Goldstream 16 (meaning 16 theatres in one)
Times and prices are
the latest information available, which in some cases may be from the 1999 tourist season.
