10 Places In Alaska You Must See Before You Die

Heading north to the last frontier is a bucket list item for so many, which probably describes why tourism is one of our top three industries. Every year people come to experience Alaska via plane, train, automobile, ferry and cruise-ship to see and experience their own dream of Alaska. For many it’s seeing the tallest mountain in North America or staying up late to catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis. For others it’s experiencing the robust salmon streams, abundant wildlife and piercing blue glaciers. We could easily write a thousand page novel about all of the places in Alaska that you should visit, but we decided to narrow down the list to 10 of the most jaw-dropping places that you absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt MUST see and experience in person before you die.

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!
