Fairbanks tourism is up, especially with independent travelers

Summer 2007 is shaping up to be a strong one for tourism in Alaska. Fairbanks and Convention and Visitors Bureau CEO Deb Hickock says preliminary numbers show an increase in a key tourism sector: independent travelers. While summer has long been a strong cruise ship season, Hickock says more visitors are coming to Alaska on their own, outside of packaged tours.
