This is my hometown. I’ve done a lot of traveling and always seem to return. Fairbanks has grown from small town to something of middle-america tourist spawn (ala the arrival of the big stores: walmart, homedepot, barns & nobel, etc) but alaskans have a way of keeping things grounded.
btw why on earth did someone tag Fairbanks with ‘garlic’? :oover 6 years ago
I think Fairbanks would be a fine place to live. It’s small but just big enough. It’s a college town in many aspects. UAF is a fine school. But these are just reasons to live there.
Also, if you have family there that might swing your reasons for visiting.
I see no point whatsoever in going to Fairbanks for vacation or getaway purposes. There are many other places to spend time (and money) in Alaska. There many prettier places, and many less flammable places.over 6 years ago
