My husband & I are flying into Fairbanks on Fri. July 4th. Our plane gets there around 8:00 pm. First off, I'm looking for a cheap & clean place to stay just for one night as we'll be driving for Denali the next morning.
I found this eccentric little place called the Front Street B&B. The owner advertises rooms for $40. It looks very.. bizarre, lol. But it sounds perfect for me & my hubby (we're 25 and 26 yrs. old). Anyone know anything about this place?? We'll also be staying in Fairbanks for one night when we return home.
My next question is, does anyone know if there are any festivities on July 4th?? And how long do they last? I looked online, but couldn't find any detailed info. Just that there is some festival at Pioneer Park and also a festival at North Pole. After being stuck sitting down almost all day on planes & at the airport, I know we're going to be excited and antsy when we arrive in Fairbanks.. most people would tell us to get some sleep that night, but I know we're going to want to explore the city for a while before we head to bed.. do the city parks, businesses, etc. stay open very late during the long summer daylight hours?? What about the city bus?
Any advice would be great!!
