Since November of 2017, we’ve been living full-time in an RV, traveling and working from the road. But prior to our RV living experiment, we were based in the Washington DC area. On the day we made this video, we had wandered our way back to Washington DC, this time as tourists.
Having traveled near and far, we know well that every place has things to see and do.
You don’t have to travel far to see interesting things and find attractions.
So, wherever you are, here’s a Wanderlust Experiment for YOU:
Regardless of where you live or how often you travel … be a tourist in your own town, and tell us about it!
What are the attractions in YOUR town? Share in the comments below.
And who knows, maybe we’ll have a chance to visit with you when we’re there!
We live in North Pole, Alaska. There is so much to do here it’s difficult to list them all! If you’re a summer visitor, make sure and go by Santa’s workshop and visit with his reindeer. The Country Cafe is a perfect place for an easy midday meal, or for something more hearty, check out Moody Brews. It’s a bbq place and it’s yummy! Head a bit north (13 miles) and you hit Fairbanks. Make sure you take a trip on the Riverboat Discovery. It’s a fun paddlewheel trip on the Chena River that takes a few hours, goes past Susan Butcher’s dog yards (4 time winner of the Iditarod), and stops at a native village where passengers get an opportunity to get off the boat and tour the village. And if you want to have a meal, make sure and book the Tanana Chief for their dinner cruise. If you like hikes, there are too many to list. Head out Chena Hot Springs road and hike up Angel’s Creek trail. After you’re done with a day of hiking, take a dip in Chena Hot Springs, a natural hotsprings. They also have a restaurant with veggies supplied from their own greenhouse. And this is year round, so even at -40, the greenhouse is producing. All the energy comes from the hotsprings, and it’s self sustaining. Quite an amazing place! There is also an ice hotel and bar. They staff a full time ice artist. A must see! There is so much to see in Alaska that it would take a lifetime to see it all, but these are just a few things near Fairbanks and North Pole.
Wow! What a great list! Thank you for sharing all of this with us, Irvie!
Those places sound amazing! I would love being at the ice hotel and bar! That’s a bucket list item for sure. Alaska in general has always appealed to me and reading your description of places makes it even more so. Thanks for sharing!
