My husband I planned three tours and made reservations for these tours before we left Atlanta for Anchorage on August 23, 2006. We stayed in your beautiful state from August 23-30, 2006 and stayed at the Marriott Courtyard near the Airport and rented a car. Our first day in Anchorage we drove to Palmer to visit the State Fair as we were anxious to see the Large Vegetables grown there and that are in competition. We were just amazed at the size of the vegetables. Next on our agenda was the Klondike Cruise from Whittier. We took the Alaska Railroad Train from Anchorage to Whittier and boarded the Klondike and it was wonderful. The scenery was awesome. We took another tour from Anchorage to Denali State Park. We took a flight around Mt. McKinley to the entrance of the park to meet the bus tour. The pilot really out did himself. He took us over the mountains and the most beautiful scenery. You have to see this scenery with the naked eye to appreciate it. Pictures are nice but just don't do it justice. Our next adventure was the "Dog Sled" tour. We drove to Girwood and got all dressed for our helicopter ride to the top of the mountain for our dog sleigh ride. This dog sled tour was absolutely wonderful. This was the last of our tours but we would like to say that what impressed us most was that when we arrived for each of our three tours they were waiting for us, very courteous and organized. We drove to several places and did a lot of sightseeing and again,. it was absolutely beautiful. We want to add that we had the most delicious Alaska King Crab Legs while we were in Anchorage. They were huge and very...very tasty. We would recommend this trip to everyone. The people in Alaska are so friendly and helpful..
