Things To Do In Alaska In The Summer

July 31, 2020

Why is summer the best time to visit Alaska?

The best thing about a summer in Alaska is the amount of opportunity it offers everyone. There are the widest array of things to see and experience in the summer time, and so many people are enchanted by the 24 hours of daylight. Winter can be a little harsh, and those not accustomed to extreme cold may not enjoy an Alaskan winter. But the animals are out and playing in the summer, the lakes are not frozen, and there are tons of things to see and do!
