Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge, Angel Rocks Trail, Antler Arch, and other attractions you added. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wedgewood Wildlife Sanctuary and make a trip to Santa Claus House.

For where to stay, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Fairbanks trip tool .
