Traveling From Fairbanks To Chicken

Yes, Chicken is a real town in Alaska. Just head out of Fairbanks due east, drive a few hours and stop to have lunch in lovely Chicken, Alaska.

While Fairbanks is in the middle of the state and seems to be the end of the road for travel, it still attracts tourists, mainly to go check out Denali National Park to the south. No mistaking the tour buses.

A creative way to protect the watershed.

It's not hard to know when you've arrived in Chicken.

The town features a landlocked dredger and a thrown together stage.

Alaska Airport Animals

Just like in the Missoula Airport, the terminal in Fairbanks features the finest examples of local wildlife. They don't mess around in Alaska, no turkeys or innocent-looking deer. Go big game or go home.

Excuse me, sir, can I start you off with a grizzly bear?

Or thinking about going polar?
