There’s A Themed Hotel In Alaska You’ll Absolutely Love

Alaskans have many forms of transportation that you won’t see in other parts of the country. Snow machines, dog sleds, river boats, and four-wheelers are common modes of transportation in Alaska, especially where paved roads are in short supply. But no single vehicle will get you farther across the vastness of Alaska than the float plane. A float plane is a small airplane with pontoons instead of wheels so it can both take off and land on water.

There is one hotel in Anchorage that has taken the float plane and exalted it to an epic level! Stay at this Alaskan resort to learn about float planes, watch them fly, and even take a ride! Where is this amazing place for the aviation enthusiast? Some remote exclusive lodge in rural Alaska? Nope. The Lakefront Hotel is right in the middle of Anchorage! You’ll be flying high in no time at this float plane-themed hotel.
