Fairbanks is the gateway to Alaska

Fairbanks is the largest city in the interior region of Alaska, and the second largest in the state.

It the main city of Fairbanks, Alaska Metropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses all of Fairbanks North Star Borough.

Before Fairbanks was founded, Athabaskan Koyukon lived, fished and hunted along the banks of the Tanana River for thousands of years. The Tanana and other rivers also served as trade routes with other Athabaskan and Inuit.

The city grew in search engines went to the gold fields via the Chena vapors landing. Barnette, initially unhappy are far from the proven gold fields, however, remained where he was when he arrived at camp search engine for trade.

In a few years, Fairbanks became the largest city in Alaska, Anchorage, although it is much bigger now.
The city of Fairbanks is now a vibrant community, alive with activity, beauty and a rich history.

Sitting just 358 miles north of Anchorage, through the Parks Highway, we like to think that instead of Delta that is the end of the motorway Alaska.

Its central location makes it the focal point of the villages scattered throughout the surrounding desert, and Fairbanks is a staging point North Slope villages such as Barrow and the oil fields of Prudhoe Bay.

However, unlike the anchor, it still retains its frontier feel down home. Is contained in the North Star County, similar to a county, but that is about the size of New Jersey.
