Fairbanks is a vibrant community, alive with activity, beauty, and a rich history. Whether you’re here for business or pleasure, you’ll want to take advantage of our cosmopolitan charms and fine hospitality in a frontier setting. Are you looking for an Alaskan outdoors adventure? Fantastic! Stay in rustic lodging or camp in the backcountry. Outfit your own outdoors adventure or let one of our many outfitters/guide services help! When you’re ready for a taste of the good life, book an elegant room in one of our many hotels or bed and breakfasts. Enjoy fine dining with our special northern flair. Sample some fine wine or a locally-made craft brew and take in all of the gorgeous scenery around you. Be sure to save time while you’re here to visit our historic and not-so-historic landmarks, make a day trip to some of Alaska’s most spectacular sites and much, much more!

If you’re here to work, take advantage of our convenient and reasonably-priced accommodations, as well as our meeting and event centers. Let us show you how Fairbanksans can work together with you to pull off a successful meeting or conference!

Whether you’re coming to work or to play—or both—be sure to visit the Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau and let them help you plan your trip here!
