It was raining when we woke. David and I decided to do the 1/2 day Fairbanks city tour offered by the hotel for $29 each. Tracy and Bill, our only remaining traveling companions, were leaving later in the day so they slept in.
Our tour left at 8:30 AM. There were 2 other couples on the tour which took us on a drive through the nearby …
We all got up fairly early and met for breakfast at the hotel's breakfast room. It was another gorgeous day. We have been so fortunate with weather.

We slept in on our last morning. We have been going just about every day for the past 2 weeks and needed to start decompressing before that long ride home.

TravelPod Member ReviewsRiver's Edge Resort Fairbanks
Very cute single cabins on the river with very friendly staff. There is not much nearby but the resort shuttle will drop you off to a nearby restaurant. They also provide free shuttle service to and from the airport. The on-site restaurant was very good but the hours were too short for us especially the bar which is open when the restaurant is open - 11-2 for lunch and 5:30-9 for dinner. The hotel is open seasonally.
