Plenty to do

Anchorage: Alaska’s largest city lies between the mountains and the sea and yet is no stranger to the wilderness. Among the northernmost cities on Earth, Anchorage is a place with big-city amenities: fine restaurants, museums, theaters and an excellent music scene.

Fairbanks: Alaska’s second-largest city – Hub of the Interior, Gateway to the Bush, the Golden Heart City.
Fairbanks is one of Alaska’s best year-round destinations, and visitors will find plenty to do whether they come for the long, warm summer days or to watch spectacular northern lights displays color the night sky in winter.

Juneau

Juneau

Juneau:  Alaska’s state capital is located between  Mount Juneau, Mount Roberts and Gastineau Channel, and is a maze of narrow streets running past a mix of new structures, old storefronts and quaint houses featuring early 19th century architecture left over from the town’s early gold mining days.

Ketchikan: Known as Alaska’s “first city” due to its location at the southern tip of the Inside Passage. The city is backed by forested slopes and distinctively shaped Deer Mountain. It faces Tongass Narrows, a waterway humming with floatplanes, fishing boats, ferries and barges hauling freight to other Inside Passage ports.
