From the dazzling northern lights to the soft glow of the midnight sun to the sparkle of gold, Fairbanks shines. Wild, untamed, the last frontier – if you’ve decided to rent an apartment in Fairbanks, get ready for an amazing adventure.
Founded in 1901, Fairbanks is the second-largest city in Alaska, after Anchorage. It is home to Ladd Army Airfield, Fairbanks International Airport, and the oldest college in Alaska, the University of Alaska. Located in the interior region of Alaska, Fairbanks is tucked along the Chena River, not far from Denali National Park.
Denali is easily one of Alaska’s most popular and most famous destinations. This wildlife preserve covers six million acres, dominated by Mt. McKinley. The park attracts roughly 400,000 people every year who come to see the wildlife and the glaciers, and to go backpacking, dog-sledding, mountain climbing, cross-country skiing, and camping. Denali is home to grizzly bears, black bears, caribou, moose, wolves, wolverines, lynx, and a wide variety of birds, including arctic warblers and tundra swans.
But wild adventures are just a part of what you’ll experience renting in Fairbanks. You’ll also enjoy the city’s museums, shops, restaurants, art galleries, and historic sites. Be sure to visit the University of Alaska Museum, where you’ll find a 36,000-year-old bison mummy. Enjoy a night out at the North Star Ballet, Opera Fairbanks, or the Fairbanks Symphony. In summer, the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival is a must-see, featuring a wide variety of painters, jewelers, potters, photographers, and more.
