The frontier spirit that helped create Fairbanks is still strong today and is part of what makes Alaska's second largest city such a thriving community. Many of the local events and attractions can provide access to the rich natural and cultural history of the Interior. Fairbanks is home to the University of Alaska Museum of the North, newly expanded and recognized as one of the state's best
museums.
