Fairbanks is the largest city in the Interior region of the State of Alaska. Incorporated in 1903, it covers almost 32 square miles of land in the Fairbanks North Star Borough. The city’s current population is estimated at close to 33,000 people.
As the transportation hub for Interior Alaska, Fairbanks maintains extensive road, rail and air connections to the rest of the state and beyond. Under the motto, “The Golden Heart of Alaska,” Fairbanks is the birthplace of many successful musicians. It’s also home to the Yukon Quest, a 1000-mile dog sled race that’s considered one of the toughest in the world. Fairbanks is known for its cross-country skiing and the hosting of many different ski events.
