Gateway to your Authentic
Alaskan Adventure!
The Morris Thompson Cultural & Visitors Center
is the new home of the Fairbanks Convention
& Visitors Bureau Visitor Information Center.
Located in downtown Fairbanks at 101 Dunkel
Street, adjacent to the Wendell Street Bridge,
the Visitor Information Center serves as the
regional visitor center for Fairbanks and
Interior Alaska and provides quality customer
service and travel information to visitors and
potential visitors. You'll find knowledgeable
staff and volunteers, racks of informative
brochures, daily accommodations listings,
local walking and driving tours, telephone and
internet access, and answers to all of your
questions. Satellite stations can be found at
the Fairbanks International Airport, Railroad
Depot and Pioneer Park.
No other place in Alaska blends the richness of
its history with the present day. Transportation
from yesteryear sternwheelers, bush planes,
railroads and sled dog teams continues to
provide experiences to visitors similar to those of
past travelers. Sports buffs can take in a full
schedule of hockey or basketball games. They
can tee off late one summer evening under the
midnight sun or view a baseball game at 10:30
pm with no artificial lights.
Climb aboard an authentic sternwheeler
riverboat for a cruise on the Chena and
Tanana Rivers.
Golden Heart Plaza
Dedicated to celebrate
Fairbanks' history and
culture, the plaza includes
an 18 foot bronze
sculpture, "Unknown First
Family" by sculptor
Malcolm Alexander.
