The Whimsical Playground In Alaska That’s Straight Out Of A Storybook

Alaska’s state capital city of Juneau is nestled in a lush area of the panhandle, with stunning views of the Gastineau Channel and Mount Roberts as far as the eyes can see. Adults love the pristine beauty that the area offers, but kiddos can get a bit stir crazy due to the immense amount of rainfall (and snow) that is common in the area.
