The Beautiful Alaska Town That’s Surrounded By Water On 3 Sides

Whittier is a sleepy little town that sits between majestic mountains at the head of Passage Canal. Although it’s only 58 miles from Anchorage, you’ll see no signs of the big city here — the population is roughly 208. But what it lacks in livelihood, it certainly makes up for in charm. It also happens to be surrounded by our beautiful waters.

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:
