Spent a couple of days in the "Biggest Alaskan Village", as some people in Fairbanks informed us the largest city in Alaska really was. The city center is clean and focused at tourism. Its weather is tempered by the ocean, meaning the winter or summer temperatures tend to be moderate. Wheres Fairbanks may have 80F in July, for example, Anchorage will stay around 60F. Its close proximity to the many fjords, glaciers and national parks make it an ideal launching point for exploration.
