Geocache Description:

This cache is located at a must visit place to get lots of the information you need to make your stay in Fairbanks enjoyable.


The Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau'sLog Cabin Visitor Center has on-line and hardcopy references available for all visitors.  Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week from May 10-25, then 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 26 through Sept. 7. Hours scale back to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. again starting Sept. 8.  Brochures are available from dispensers outside the cabin's doors during non-business hours.

Outside the Visitor Center is Golden Heart Plaza.  The plaza features a fountain surrounded by interpretive plaques commemorating the development of Alaska.  During the summer, flowers bloom profusely and people enjoy sitting on the plaza's benches watching people and/or the Chena River go by.

Just south at 250 Cushman Street is the Alaska Public Lands Information Center, where you can get information about access to Alaska's state and federal lands.  Free documentary and wildlife movies are shown throughout the day at the center and the staff there can help you plan your trip(s) outside the city.  Hours of operation are:   Summer, daily, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and  Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. the rest of the year.

Needless to say, this area is one of the most public of public places in Fairbanks, which makes this one of the most brazen local caches.  The camouflaged candy tin cache is hidden in a location that will shield you from most inquisitive eyes, but the tradeoff is sketchy GPS reception.  Please use your best stealth moves and/or come during quiet times to assure the longevity of this cache. You do not need to leave the sidewalk or dig around in the flower beds to access the cache.

Enjoy your stay in Fairbanks, the Golden Heart of Alaska!!!
