My husband and myself celebrated our 25th anniversary with a trip to Alaska this past July. We are now planning trip #2. It is very difficult to explain to someone else just how magnificent your state truly is. Snow capped moutains everywhere, otters playing feet away from our tour boat, good food (I had wanted crab, but not in season) the halibut was out of this world. Humpy's in Anchorage, great place. Also don't miss the Alaska Sealife Center in Seward.
We did stay at the Denali River Cabins just outside of the park, beautiful cabins. We took the 26 Glacier cruise out of Whittier which was also wonderful, no rocking, pitching or vomiting. But awsome scenery. Just remember to bring fleece and or jackets.
I am glad we did not take a cruise as we would have missed too much. We did a lot of driving on our own and used the buses which take you everywhere, great tour guides and lots of information on local places to see. My only problem was how light it was at 11:30PM, but it let me see things longer than if it was dark out.
Thanks for having us and we can't wait to come back.
