Fairbanks : Michelin's recommendations
Spread among rolling hills along the Chewna River, Alaska’s second-largest city is the hub for the state’s interior. Beginning as a trading post for gold miners in 1901, the town prospered with the building of military instillations in World War II and the Trans-Alaska Pipeline in the 1970s. A resourceful and often eccentric citizenry copes with brutal winters and opens its arms to the nightless days of summer.
