Quality of Life

Not only is Fairbanks a beautiful and intriguing place to live, it also offers a competitive quality of life advantage many states can't even touch. This is a city where you can grow a business and raise a family; a place where people don't come to find themselves, but rather to create themselves. 

Over 20 hours of summer sunlight allows plenty of play time.  Exploring the vast wilderness at our doorstep, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and other activities, all make for world-class winter enjoyment.  All this in a town where 95 percent of the people have less than a twenty-minute commute to work.
