The best part for me was the airplane trip to Denali and the day cruise to Kenai Fjord National Park

The airport is really laid back and isn’t too large that you get lost. You instantly get that outdoorsy adventurous feel of the last frontier as you walk through the airport which is a nice welcome to the state of Alaska.

Make Anchorage your base before setting out to explore the great state of Alaska. Wide range of outdoor activities in all seasons are very close to Anchorage. The city has everything you need to stock up for an adventure or let loose after one.

I only spent 24 hours in this city but I was completely blown away. It's absolutely beautiful (and I went during the "summer" time). Surprisingly the food here is incredible and there are a ton of whole in the wall restaurants for every thing you could want. Definitely a place I hope to return to.
