11 Things Alaska Doesn’t Have And We Like It That Way

Alaska is far to the north, leaving it dark and cold in the winter, light all night in the summer, and pretty far away from everywhere else. You have to drive most of week through Canada, and cross an international border, to get to Washington, or sail on the ferry for days or weeks. With so much distance between Alaska and the rest of the U.S., life in the north lacks a lot in convenience. But that also keeps life a little simpler. See this list of the things Alaska doesn’t have, or doesn’t have much of, and you’ll love the Great Land even more.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
