This Restaurant In Alaska Is So Much More Than A Place To Eat
From almost anywhere in Alaska, heading to Healy is a trek. But if the mountains call to you, you are sure to find yourself near Denali National Park at some point during the year. And if you don’t, head out on a day trip to this tasty dining destination. Nothing hits the spot after a long day of adventuring like the menu at 49th State. They have everything you want, and a whole host of tasty brews to wash it down. You’ll have a great time at one of their live music events, or just relax in the dining room and sample the dishes. With games in the courtyard, great entertainment and a variety of microbrews, 49th State is so much more than a place to eat.
