My husband and I left for Fairbanks, Alaska one week after we got married in May of 2016. We spent a little of two months living and working in Alaska as assistant camp counselors. We went back in July 2017. Here’s some of our favorite things and what I suggest you check out in Fairbanks and the surrounding area:
Fairbanks, Alaska is in the interior of Alaska and is the second largest city in the state. It’s a college town with rich history and beautiful scenery all around it. At times it reminded me of the eclectic city of Asheville, NC– a bit hippy-ish and outdoorsy. The downtown area is very small and the city itself is easy to navigate.
