Interior

Situated just 194 miles south of the Arctic Circle at the confluence of the Chena and Tanana Rivers, Fairbanks is the central hub city for Interior Alaska. Looking south from Fairbanks, the wide, sprawling expanse of the Tanana Flats melts into the foothills of the Alaska Range. North America’s highest mountain, Mount McKinley, also known by its Athabascan name, Denali, or The Great One, stands high against the southwest sky.

Alaska’s second largest city is flanked by rolling hills upon which the University of Alaska campus sits at the western edge of town.

With a strong music and arts scene that includes a summer arts festival, a symphony, folk, dance, ballet, yoga and more many residents love the eclectic cultural opportunities in a community that also draws outdoor enthusiasts with a passion for wilderness and backcountry adventure. Fairbanks Memorial Hospital has a total service area population just over 100,000. There are several clinics and private practice options as well as a small hospital on the army base Ft. Wainwright.
