Fairbanks is the second biggest city in Alaska and indeed it was quite big (rather just wide) although the downtown is pretty small and walkable in a few hours. The city has quite extreme wheather as far as i know (however is survived everything).
Snow in the summer just one of the unaccustomed weather conditions. Winters are very long, lasting from September to April maybe threfore I had to leave Alaska at the of August (got some snow in this area).
Fairbanks is not my favourite Alaskan town although it offers a wide selection of activities and sights not just in town but all over Alaska's interior. While in town don't miss the visitor centre and the fountain nearby. The statue represents the first settlers in Fairbanks.
