We went during the winter time so the cabins are closed. However, they put up Christmas lights on them so we still end up spending at least an hour there to take pictures. But make sure you dress warm. Our toes were almost frozen and we were forced to go back into the car because of the cold.

During my stay in Fairbanks I did a Salmon Bake and Golden Heart Review evening tour. The evening I was there was the last salmon bake of the season so it was extremely busy. There were long lines for the for the salmon bake and seating at times was limited. There was reasonably choice of salads and hot food. Dessert... More

I was born in Fairbanks but just went back for first time in over 25 years. I will say "Pioneer Park" (wow that was hard to type) has improved greatly from my memory as a kid. If you are in fairbanks with your kids, be sure to take them here. You can see some good history, and there is a... More

This historic park is certainly interesting although probbaly not for the whole family Heaps of amazing historical facts, steam boats, Alaskan gold rush displayed items and much much more including a gold rush themed town you can walk around and even buy souvenirs from.

If you're interested in the Alaskan gold rush period I reccomended stopping by Pioneer Park (also known as "Alaskaland" by many locals). The shops are open in the summer, different food and sweet stores along with handcrafted shops. Much history is posted around the park. Also stop by the a Salmon Bake which has super delicious food, the salmon is... More

We had dinner at the Salmon bake which was very good. The little shops had just closed for the season when we got there but the carousel was open and the playground was open. So we had fun there.

There is a lot going on at Pioneer Park off and on. I appreciate the premise of it, offering a place for families to go and dogs on leashes. It is a nice place, but it's not the first place I would tell people visiting Fairbanks to go. There are some kitschy museums and tourist shops. There are a few... More

So many attractions close for the winter. We were there first week of Oct. and it was closed already. They let you come in and walk around but there isn't much to do. The antique museum was closed, but they were having a meeting there and let us in, and unlocked it for us!! They have a lot of very... More

This low rating is not fair because nothing was open. We did slog around and see everything and did enjoy our day.
