21 Things No Self-Respecting Alaskan Would Ever Do

The Alaska life is one that is wildly complex and unique. When outsiders come here, they are oftentimes filled with questions about the way in which we live our lives. But hey – we get it! It’s weird up here. It’s really cold and dark, followed by months on end where it feels like the sun never sets. Not to mention, we do have some pretty rugged style and a fierce level of protectiveness over our beloved traditions. At the end of the day, we just know who we are and we love the place that we are so lucky to call home. Alaska or bust, baby!

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!
