Hi: I am thinking about a visit to Fairbanks and beyond in March 2012, and would appreciate any advice. On my "bucket list" is seeing the Northern Lights. I have a friend who lives in Fairbanks, and was thinking of visiting her. I had been considering Chena Hot Springs Resort, but that seems to be getting bad reviews these days. Is there a better alternative? And finally I was considering a trip up to Bettles Lodge, which seems to be getting good reviews here on TA these days. Many thanks in advance for advice and assistance, including ideas on what order to do things. I live in northern California.
