I must admit it’s not very hard to experience close encounters with wildlife in Alaska. You don’t really have to look very hard to find yourself face to face with a bald eagle, a big moose, or a grizzly bear. In fact, I’m willing to estimate that almost all of you readers that live in Alaska have had, at one point or another, a moose in your yard or cross in front of you in the street. But if you’re looking to get a little closer with nature and not only on accident, here are some great destinations around the state for animals lovers like you and me!
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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
