During our first full day in Fairbanks, we made the 45 minute drive from our hotel to the Chena Hot Springs Resort. While we didn’t actually go in the hot springs, the resort offered various attractions such as the Aurora Ice Museum, airplane rides, and swimming pool activities.

We decided that we wanted to tour the Aurora Ice Museum and we got to explore the resort while we waited for our group to enter. The resort had a dog kennel, and offered the opportunity to adopt some of the dogs. If we were not  4,192 miles from home, we probably would have came home with a few new pets.
