Tanana is accessible by air and river transportation. It is located about two miles west of the junction of the Tanana and Yukon Rivers,
130 air miles west of Fairbanks. It was a traditional trading settlement for Koyukon and Tanana Athabascans long before European contact.
The City of Tanana (population: approximately 300) was incorporated in 1961. It maintains 32 miles of local roads,
and operates the State-owned Ralph M. Calhoun Memorial Airport. Cars, trucks, snowmachines, ATVs and riverboats are used for local transportation.
People are friendly but it's not all that easy for visitors to really get to know Tanana.
Strangers stand out and a room for the night is hard to find (and expensive).
The sale of alcohol is restricted.
