On our radio show today with “Gal Radio” Mindy O’Neall, she talked about heading up to Fairbanks to see the incredible ice sculptures. Above, “Ravens on Ice”. Everything is front and center at the Ice Alaska park!!
Do you need any more incentives? How about a good deal on Era? You got it! Now–take advantage of great deals between now and mid-May at the Fairbanks Princess! As low as $69 per night. Whoa!
Stay at the Princess Lodge on the banks of the now-frozen Chena River, just about a mile from the airport. They’ve got a free shuttle to the hotel, but you may want to rent a car to cruise around town. Eat at “Trackers” for breakfast. Great grub!
Rain or shine, don’t miss the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum.
Also, go see the Museum of the North on the campus of the University of Alaska. It’s got a fantastic permanent collection of Alaskan artifacts and art. But the rotating exhibits are incredible, including lots of modern art from around the state. Don’t miss “The Place Where You Go To Listen.” Think “Multimedia”. It can be overwhelming. Calming. Dreamlike. GO!
