What To Expect
The Alaska Salmon Bake is a truly Alaskan dining experience. Enjoy salmon, halibut and cod direct from Alaska's icy waters or slow roasted prime rib cooked over an open wood grill before your eyes. The meal is served from 17:00 to 21:00 and guests can come by any time.
After this hearty, delicious meal, you can spend some time on your own exploring Fairbanks' 44-acre Pioneer Park, which opened in 1967 to celebrate the centennial of the Alaska Purchase. The park commemorates early Alaskan history and includes:
Gold Rush Town - 35 restored buildings from early Fairbanks, including the first church in Fairbanks and a house owned by Judge James D. Wickersham. Most now house gift shops and other merchants.
SS Nenana - a sternwheeler that carried passengers and cargo on the Hena River from 1933 to 1954. At 230 feet (70 m) it is the second-longest wooden-hulled ship still in existence. Now a museum.
Denali Observation car ("Harding Car") - the rail car used by President Warren G. Harding during a visit to Alaska in 1923 to formally complete the Alaska Railroad.
Replica Alaska Native village featuring artifacts.
Alaska Centennial Center for the Arts - theater, art gallery, and meeting hall.
Pioneer Hall - designed to resemble an early-20th-century meeting hall. Includes the Pioneer Museum, which features Gold Rush memorabilia and the "Big Stampede" mural presentation.
Pioneer Air Museum - aviation memorabilia and 14 aircraft; begun through the efforts of aviation historian Randy Acord.
Crooked Creek and Whiskey Island Railroad - operating narrow-gauge railroad which circumnavigates the park.
