We had so much fun walking though and looking at all the tiny places. Things were closed because we went in November but it was still worth walking around and checking out the area.

On our final day in Fairbanks we spent the day before flying home that night. Many food choices, lots to see. We were fortunate that the weather was great, we took a shuttle to and from our nearby hotel.

Nothing was open but still a lovely place to walk around. Some buildings had signs. Riverboat, plane, train were fun to see. We never could find what hours they are open, either on location or on the internet. Too bad. Hope to make it back!

It’s free to enter the park. There are a number of little stores that you can purchase souvenirs at.

I'm not the owner of the park, and have no answer to this question. This should have been directed to the owner.
