One of the most important factors that holds people in Fairbanks is its community.

Good schools, a strong artistic presence, superb outdoor recreational opportunities and the best weather in Alaska, combine to make Fairbanks a great place to work and call home.

Fairbanks residents are proud of their city.  Situated under the Tanana Valley sunshine, the Golden Heart city is a close-knit community surrounded by some of the most beautiful nature in North America.

With some of the best schools in the country, unparalleled fishing, hunting and boating, and avid sports participation on all levels from T-ball to NCAA Division I, Fairbanks is a wonderful place to raise a family.
