The Southernmost Town In Alaska That’s Both Wild And Beautiful

This isolated island destination in the Last Frontier is both the southermost town in Alaska and the westernmost place in the United States of America. Although it is no longer the bustling military base that it was in the past, it has truly proven to stand the test of time over the last twenty years. The bountiful natural resources that are available on the island attract visitors from all around the world each and every year.

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!
