The Very First Road In Alaska Still Exists And Its History Is Captivating

Alaska is a relatively young state. Far before we even became a state, gold miners flocked to Alaska to explore the “Last Frontier.” What started as a pack trail, the Richardson Highway in Alaska is now one of the most scenic routes in the entire state. This road routinely gets added to many people’s bucket lists, and it’s no surprise why!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
