FAIRBANKS, Alaska —

Lonely Planet has named Fairbanks its No. 2 travel destination in the U.S.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://is.gd/0uTynn) reports that Fairbanks was surpassed on Lonely Planet's list by just one other travel destinations - Louisville, Ky.

Washington's San Juan Islands came in third.

Lonely Planet posted its "Top 10 U.S. Destinations for 2013" on Wednesday. U.S. travel editor Robert Reid says the 2013 list was compiled with a goal of steering people toward under-appreciated destinations.

Lonely Planet says the big draw in Fairbanks next year will be the Northern Lights, which should be particularly active next year and a hit with aurora-seeking tourists.

The complete list is available online at http://www.lonelyplanet.com/usa/travel-tips-and-articles/77583.
