Destinations / North America

Alaska is one of those destinations that enjoys a top spot on many family travelers’ bucket lists, and for good reason. Miles of untamed wilderness, fascinating culture and endless adventure, it definitely has the makings of an ideal family vacation, and Fairbanks is a great place to start. Whether you visit when the Aurora Borealis is visible or when the sun stays up around the clock, the city’s amazing attractions give family memories to last a lifetime.


Indoor attractions like Fairbanks Children’s Museum is a great place for kids to engage in play-based learning, especially with unique events like Baby Mingle and Sensory-Friendly Sundays, programs designed to create an ideal environment for families with kids with sensory processing differences or for babies age 2 and under.


For families wanting to interact with nature and meet some of the local wildlife, head to Running Reindeer Ranch, where you can have unique experiences with reindeer year-round. In winter, take a guided nature walk through the snow alongside the ranch’s gentle reindeer, while during summer, you can enjoy the Alaskan version of goat yoga, but with reindeer!


To introduce kids to Alaska’s fascinating cultural heritage, head to Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center, where you can discover local history, culture and traditions through artwork and educational exhibits showcasing the native peoples who call Alaska home.


While these are just a few of the ways your family can discover Fairbanks, it is sure to give you more than enough reasons to make it a family favorite you’ll want to visit again and again.
