This Remote Alaska Road Is Picture Perfect For A Country Drive

You may not be able to drive from the rest of the road system to get to Nome but once there, 350 miles of highway system connects you to the rest of the Seward Peninsula. The 72 mile long Nome-Council Highway stretches into the Alaskan wilderness past grasslands, coastal flatlands and leads to the beach. Take a day trip from Nome on the Nome-Council Highway and explore this uniquely beautiful part of Alaska.
