4 days in Alaska from Fairbanks

I started a new thread because most old threads talked of trips from Anchorage. I have booked flights to Fairbanks. reaching 7/4 at midnight and the flight out is on 7/8 at 1AM.

I have never been to Alaska and plan to fly to Anchorage to see the area south of ANC later. I would love to hear of more suggestions of things to see in Central Alaska. I have created a rough itinerary. keeping in mind that I would be traveling with my parents who are 60+ are would not be able to walk/hike much.

7/4 drive to Matanushka along Glenn-Richarson Highway
7/5 see Matanushka and stay the night in Anchorage (things to see). is it better to skip ANC and go straight to Talkeetna?
7/6 drive to Talkeetna, flight seeing, night near Denali
7/7 Denali the whole day shuttle+ small hikes and drive back to FAI.

Do you think this is reasonable? Should I add delete anything?

I think I am spending two whole days in my attempt to see sights along Glenn-Richardson highway and Matanushka. Should I skip it and add something else, maybe north of FAI?

Would love to get suggestions.

You might think about flying from FAI to Barrow for a night.If you're going to go to ANC on a later trip, I definitely would not go via land from FAI to ANC. When you go to Denali, whether from FAI or ANC, think about the train. Have a great trip!
